9 Cheesecake Places in New York

Nothing says New York, like the rich and dense New York Cheesecake. Made typically with cream cheese, this iconic cheesecake relies upon heavy cream or sour cream, eggs and egg yolks. It is baked in a special 5- to 6-inch tall spring form pan in many restaurants. Some recipes use cottage cheese and lemon for distinct texture and flavour or add chocolate or strawberry to the basic recipe. Its unique style of baking gives a rich interior and light brown exterior. Enjoy a slice with a hot cocktail for a comforting end to any meal.
