Today I celebrate my 10,000 visits. It’s been almost 9 months of fun, new friends, stress, reading, cooking, writing and EATING… Thanks for your support!
One of my all-time favorite TV shows is Friends. I never get tire of it. They stayed on the air for ten years and to celebrate my 10,000 visits, I give you one of their recipes.
I don’t know if it is as good as the cheesecake from Mama’s Little Bakery, but this is allegedly “The Best New York Cheesecake”. Let see if is true, shall we?
Cake6 large eggs 1 ½ Cup sugar 1 k. (four 225 g packages) cream cheese 1 cup sour cream 1 cup heavy cream juice of one lemon 1 tbsp. vanilla extract 2 heaping tbsp. flour
Crust1 ½ Cup crushed vanilla wafers (you can also use crushed graham crackers, or digestive biscuits) 6 tbsp. melted butter ½ Cup sugar
Preheat oven to 425°F (220 ºC)
Add eggs, sugar, cream cheese, sour cream, heavy cream, lemon juice, vanilla, and flour to mixer. Beat (on low to low-medium speed) thoroughly, until completely smooth.
While cake mixture is beating, make the crust. Mix crust ingredients together in small mixing bowl. Pour into 9″ (22 cm) spring form pan, pressing into place with your fingers or the back of a spoon.
Chill in the fridge for 15 minutes.
When crust is cool, and cake is thoroughly mixed, pour batter into the pan over the back of a big spoon, so the batter does not disturb the crust. Let it rest for 5 or 10 minutes.
Bake in 425° oven for 15 minutes. Then turn oven down to 275°F (135 – 140 ºC) and bake for 1 hour. Turn off oven. Do not open the oven door for 2 hours!
After the 2 hours are up, remove cake and refrigerate.
