New York Style Cheesecake

New York Style Cheesecake is a type of dessert made from sweetened cream cheese, sour cream, and eggs. Originally, this type of cheesecake has no toppings but several variations are made to add more life and flavor to this exquisite dessert. Common variations include fresh or sweetened cherry or strawberry toppings and some even use whip cream.

New York Style Cheese Cake

This particular recipe is not complicated at all. Since we made this for Christmas dinner, we thought of using some ready made ingredients to save some time. Instead of making the crust (graham crust) from scratch, I decided to get a ready-made graham pie crust from the local grocery store. We also bought a ready made cherry pie filling so that we can save more time in making the topping. The result is a great tasting cheesecake completed for just an hour (and 30 mins to an hour spent waiting while refrigerating it).
