So, first time poster (long time lurker). Last night my best friend came over and we made a night of cheesecake making.



We mostly used this New York Cheesecake recipe (with a few changes here and there as follows).

1 3/4 c graham crackers, crushed
3 tps butter, melted
32 oz cream cheese
1 1/2 cups white sugar
3/4 cup milk
4 eggs
1 c sour cream
2 tps vanilla extract
1/4 c flour
Optional: Mini Chocolate Chips

Preheat to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9 inch springform pan.
In a medium bowl, mix graham cracker crumbs with melted butter. Press onto bottom of springform pan.
In a large bowl, mix cream cheese with sugar until smooth. Blend in milk, and then mix in the eggs one at a time. Add in sour cream, vanilla and flour until smooth. Add chocolate chips till chocolate-y enough. Pour filling into crust.
Bake for 1 hour.

It cracked pretty hardcore, but I attribute that to our impatience and wanting to eat it as quickly as possible. : )

You say to add flour but it's not in your ingredient list. How much?

1/4 a cup. Sorry! That's what I get when I don't proofread.

did you cook it in a bain marie? if not that's why it cracked.
tinitrinity 20th-Jan-2013 11:06 pm (UTC)
Not this one, but the next one we did (which also cracked). ngl, we took like no steps to prevent cracking so there's like a thousand reasons why it would have. We figured it was just for us and we were more concerned with eating it, lol. : D

totally fair.

i'll make creme brulee and barely cool them before bruleeing them bc IDGAF who sees them they're just going in my belly.
tinitrinity 20th-Jan-2013 11:11 pm (UTC)

I have to buy cream sometime soon to make ice cream for my dad, but if I have cream and eggs in the house and I'm making custard anyways I will have both ice cream and creme brulee and omg my pants wont fit.

It is important not to open the oven door during your baking, as the uneven heat will cause it to crack. Sherry Yard advises that you should leave your cheesecake in the oven after it has completed baking with the heat turned off, as the slow decrease in heat will avoid or minimize cracking.

Oh absolutely. Which is why I blamed the cracking due to our impatience. Lol. As soon as the timer went off we ripped that cheesecake out so fast. Haha. It was all about getting that cheesecake in our bellies : D

When I make a cheesecake next month for my mother's birthday, however, I'm sure I'm gonna take a lot more crack-preventative steps. : D

Usually when I make a cheesecake I start it off at a high temperature (450 degrees F) for 10 minutes then turn the oven down for the rest of the time (270 degrees F for another 55-65 minutes) and this prevents it from cracking and/or getting too dark on the top. Plus, that way you don't have to worry about doing the water bath thing which is just a total pain in the ass!

Thank you for that tip. This was only the second cheesecake I've ever made and while we weren't worried about cracking this time (it was more to fill our cheesecake-craving-tummies and therefor we took like zero precautions, lol). I'll try to remember this for the future though. : D

And is it as deliciously evil as it looks? :D
tinitrinity 21st-Jan-2013 02:51 pm (UTC)

i coincidentally have a springform pan and a bag of chocolate chips! which means i might have to make this, because it looks SO GOOD.
tinitrinity 21st-Jan-2013 07:47 pm (UTC)
You so should. Lol, it's been a difficulty not to cut myself a piece for breakfast :D

tinitrinity 21st-Jan-2013 07:46 pm (UTC)
I'd never used this recipe before but it worked out so well. Lol, the chocolate chips was a last minute "if we're going to girls night we're going to do it with chocolate." kind of thing. : )
