New York Cheesecake Recipe

Serves 10

Ingredients

  • 15 graham crackers, crushed

  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted

  • 4 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese

  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar

  • 3/4 cup milk

  • 4 eggs

  • 1 cup sour cream

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9 inch springform pan.

  1. In a medium bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs with melted butter. Press onto bottom of springform pan.

  1. In a large bowl, mix cream cheese with sugar until smooth. Blend in milk, and then mix in the eggs one at a time, mixing just enough to incorporate. Mix in sour cream, vanilla and flour until smooth. Pour filling into prepared crust.

  1. Bake in preheated oven for 1 hour. Turn the oven off, and let cake cool in oven with the door closed for 5 to 6 hours; this prevents cracking. Chill in refrigerator until serving.
