New York Cheesecake
(New York City)
One of New York’s favorite desserts is a slice of good old-fashioned New York cheesecake. The history of this classic traces back to European immigrant bakers in New York City, who altered Old World recipes that used farmer’s cheese, similar to the cream cheese that gets used in this version, along with a signature Graham cracker crust. Today you can find this creamy, delicious cake pretty much anywhere in the city — from classic diners to Michelin-starred eateries. Here’s how to make the perfect New York cheesecake at home.
