New York Cheesecake

Our easy take on the Big Apple favorite, this rich and creamy New York Cheesecake recipe is inspired by the famous mile-high version you can still find at the Carnegie Deli in New York City.

What You'll Need

  • 1 (16.5-ounce) package refrigerated sugar cookie dough, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 4 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoon lemon juice

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat the bottom of a 9-inch springform pan with cooking spray. Line bottom of pan with half the cookie dough slices; with your fingers, spread dough to create a solid crust. 
     
  2. Bake 10 minutes, or until golden. Let cool.
     
  3. Press remaining dough slices around sides of pan to create a side crust; set aside. Increase oven temperature to 450 degrees F.
     
  4. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese with sugar until smooth. Beat in remaining ingredients until well combined. Spoon batter into crust.
     
  5. Bake 10 minutes, or until crust is golden. Reduce oven temperature to 350 degrees and bake 30 more minutes. Remove cheesecake from oven.
     
  6. Let cool 4 to 5 hours at room temperature. Remove springform pan ring; cover and chill at least 6 hours before serving.
