New York Cheesecake Recipe

I've had the WORST craving for cheesecake over the last couple days but I didn't have any cream cheese in my fridge because I had to throw it out after the long power outage we had last weekend. So after I got to the store this week I could finally give in yesterday and whip one up! Let me know what you think if you feel the need to make this!
What you need:
  • 1 1/2 c. crushed graham crackers
  • 1/3 c. butter
  • 3 80z. pk. cream cheese
  • 1 can sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 t. vanilla
  • 2 egg whites
Melt the butter and mix with the crushed graham crackers. Spread on the bottom of a spring form pan and pat down. Then soften the cream cheese and mix with the remaining ingredients. Pour the cream cheese mixture onto the packed down graham crackers. Bake at 300F for 1 hour or until the top starts to brown slightly. And as you can see from the picture I put pureed strawberries on top mine.....yum!

Hi! I just found your blog yesterday (8/22/11) via the Rapid City Daily News online. Love your blog! I adore New York cheesecake!!! We usually top ours with cherries, but I’ll have to give strawberries a try. Did you use fresh strawberries? TIA!
