How To Make a Classic New York Cheesecake
You Will Need
  • 1/4 c. plus 2 tbsp. melted butter, divided
  • 1 c. graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/2 c. sugar, divided
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 c. sour cream
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 16 oz. full-fat cream cheese
  • A 9-inch springform pan
  • Small and medium mixing bowls
  • A hand mixer
  • A cooling rack
step 1Preheat the oven
Heat the oven to 325 degrees Fahrenheit and grease the bottom of the pan with 1 tablespoon of melted butter. Set aside.
step 2Prepare the crust
Combine the graham cracker crumbs, 1/4 cup of melted butter and 1/4 cup of sugar in a small bowl with the large fork. Mix until the crumbs are coated with butter.
step 3Make the crust
Empty the contents into the prepared pan and push down firmly on the base. Use your fingers, or the back of a fork, to form a solid crust.
step 4Make the cheesecake filling
In a medium bowl, blend the eggs, sour cream, and vanilla on medium speed with the hand mixer. Add the cream cheese, cup of sugar, and 1 tablespoon of butter. Mix on low speed until combined.
tip Using cream cheese at room temperature will make it easier to blend.
step 5Prepare to bake
Pour the cheesecake filling over the graham cracker crust and spread evenly across the pan.
step 6Bake the cheesecake
Bake the cheesecake for 50 minutes to an hour, then broil for five to eight minutes, or until the top begins to brown.
step 7 Leave the cheesecake to set
Remove the pan from the oven and set on a cooling rack for 10 to 15 minutes before refrigerating it. Leave it to cool and set for at least three to four hours, or overnight for the best flavor and texture.
