New York Cheesecake Recipe

New York is world famous for its delicious cheesecakes. Any time one of my family members heads into New York, they're asked by family and friends to bring a few cheesecakes back with them.

1 1/4 c Crushed Zweiback crumbs
3 Tbsp butter
1 Tbsp Sugar

2 lbs Cream cheese
1 1/3 c Sugar
4 Eggs
2 Tbsp flour
2 tsp Grated lemon zest
1/3 c Heavy cream

To make the crust, mix the crumbs, butter and sugar. Press into the bottom and sides of a 10" springform pan. Bake 8 minutes at 325F.

Now mix cheese and sugar until blended. Blend in eggs. Mix in flour, zest and cream. Pour into the crust. Bake at 400F for 10 minutes, then another 40 minutes at 250F. Let cool in the open oven for an hour.
