Ultimate Homemade Cheesecake – In a Few Easy Steps
With only a few easy steps, you can dazzle family and friends with a homemade Ultimate Cheesecake.
We all have had an amazing slice of cheesecake in a restaurant, deli or diner and thought it must take a lot of talent, time and energy to create such a wonderful dessert. When I started researching how some of those New York delis and restaurants make cheesecake, I thought it was way too much work.
Because I’m a busy mom, I don’t have hours and hours to spend in the kitchen. So I came up with a simple few steps to create the Ultimate Cheesecake that will rival that of any restaurant or diner. The longest part of the recipe is the time it takes for the cake to chill in the fridge.
Start with a traditional graham cracker crumb crust in a springform pan.
Mix the filling ingredients, pour over crust and bake. No fancy water baths are needed!
After the cheesecake is done baking, spread on the sour cream topping and bake for 10 more minutes.
Let it cool; cover and refrigerate for a few hours or overnight. This cheesecake tastes even better than it looks. Everyone will think you slaved for hours on end in the kitchen to create such a masterpiece.
