Making the cream cheese filling.
Traditional New York Style cheesecake:
1). Beat all cream cheese with a mixer at medium speed until smooth and creamy. Slowly add the remainder ½ cup sugar, flour, and vanilla. Beat well until further blended.
2). Next add the egg, and sour cream beating until well blended. Pour mixture into prepared crust, making sure you spoon all the filling into the prepared pan. Place the prepared cheesecake in the middle rack in the oven.
3). On the bottom rack of the oven place another baking or pie pan filled with water. This pan with water will create steam in the oven, and prevent your cheesecake from cracking. (This is very important).
4). Bake your cheesecake for approx 45 min or until center is almost set. (You can determine this by sticking a toothpick in the center). (If the toothpick comes out clean when you stick the cheesecake- than your cheesecake is done.)
5). When done remove your cheesecake from oven, cool on wire rack, and discard the pan with water. Cover and chill your cheesecake for approx 6 hours. Gently run a knife around edge of cheesecake to release sides of pan.
6). Serve your cheesecake with Homemade whipped cream, and canned cherries.
Homemade whipped cream recipe.
This is absolutely delicious. Once you make this- you will never buy whipped cream from a container.
1). In a large bowl pour your heavy whipping cream in. Beat with a hand mixer until stiff peaks start to form (approx 5 minutes). Slowly add your sugar, and vanilla, and continue to beat with the mixer. The whipped cream will be ready when you remove the beaters and the cream stays still. (This is stiff peaks).
This is so delicious. Just make sure you don't eat all the whipped cream and have none for your cheesecake.
