This is one of those recipes that took me a while to figure out. Like a lot of baking recipes, it’s just as much about the technique as the ingredients. In this case, the technique is in learning when to take it out of the oven; so I made sure to include a lot of description and even the internal temp. for you over achievers like me. This is a standard New York style cheesecake so change it up as far as the garnish, add caramel, chocolate and pecans to the top for a turtle cheesecake; throw in 3/4 cup of broken oreo pieces into the batter and fold in for an oreo variety, I’ve even poured chocolate ganache over the entire thing and topped it with raspberries. The picture you’ll see is stunning, it will impress anyone and if you have someone you love in your life and you want to show it, make this for their birthday.
