If you've been craving a dense, cheesy cheesecake but can't make it to New York, try this recipe. Instruction for a lighter, lemony cheesecake are also given. Both are perfect with cherries, strawberries, or any topping you fancy.
"The most recent reviewer is correct on both counts! The directions do not say what to do with the sugar...and the sugar does indeed belong in the crust. Thank you for pointing that out. On another note- this recipe makes a New York "Style" cheesecake that is much more dense than the light and fluffy ones that are often seen. Although not an authentic New York Cheesecake, it is quite good. I have been making it for many years and have received countless requests for the recipe. It always turns out perfect and is always a huge hit at my house!"- Sherri

Dartgunn 3 months agoI just didn't add the sugar and it was fine. Sweetened condensed milk has an insane amount of sugar anyway. This was good and folks seemed to like it, but I'm going to keep searching for my dream cheesecake recipe. This tasted too bland to me and wasn't dense enough for my taste.
