Our girl came home for a day between nutrition conferences and feedlot boot-camps and it happened to fall on her birthday. She requested cheesecake for her birthday so that sent me on the hunt for the best cheesecake ever. I've made a few in the past, but none of them were spectacular and I will admit to having caved and having made the boxed cheesecake mix in the past as well as the one that calls for sweetened condensed milk.
However, this cheescake had to be especially amazing since it was for an especially amazing child. :)
I took my chances and browsed through Pinterest and fell upon this recipe:
Best New York Cheesecake
Anyone can claimed their recipe is 'The Best', but these ingredients really did sound like they had the potential to make it so, so I said a little prayer and held my breath.
It looked good.
It smelled wonderful.
It tasted amazing!
The only thing I did differently, was that I baked it in a 10" spring-form pan. Our girl had just been to The Cheesecake Factory in Salt Lake City the previous week and she claimed this cheesecake to be better than theirs. Yes, she is my child, but if you knew her, you would know that she is as honest as her Daddy. I've never known him to lie and she would never say that just to appease her Mama.
DH is not a huge cheesecake fan and even he loved it so he is now! Six thumbs up from the taste testers at this house!
Now I've got to add another leg to that morning walk, but I'll gladly do so because another slice of cheesecake is calling my name!
