Seeking the best NY-Style Cheescake recipe
Have you found a delicious, no-fail recipe? It would be a bonus if it could be scaled down to yield ~6 servings. TIA.
For each 8 oz of full fat cream cheese, one large egg, sweetener, lemon juice (and zest, optional) and vanilla to taste. Beat on low just until creamy/blended, don't over beat.
Bake in a bain marie at 350 until still jiggly in the middle, don't overbake. Turn off oven, let it cool before removal.
I don't use a recipe any more.
My mom always used the recipe from her Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook. Simply the best cheesecake I've ever eaten. I'd guess her cookbook was circa 1960's.
