This classic, New York cheesecake recipe is probably the only cheesecake recipe you ever need - a lovely buttery crust filled with tangy cream cheese filling and topped with plain sour cream - the most perfect combination for a cheesecake!
This is a classic baked cheesecake recipe. It is slightly different than my easy cheesecake recipe in that this recipe calls for the use of sour cream while the easy cheesecake recipe is made without any sour cream.
This is a recipe worth trying and keeping as you can use this as a base for all other varieties of cheesecakes - lemon, blueberry, strawberry, etc.
I have used sour cream as the topping for this cheesecake. You can always serve it plain if you wish, or garnish it with a simple drizzle of salted caramel or melted chocolate for a even more delicious cheesecake!
