Lucinda's New York-Style Cheesecake

Rating: 3.5 stars 307
A New York cheesecake is heavy on the cream, so our recipe calls for five packages of cream cheese plus a cup of sour cream. Under the fluffy, decadent filling is a simple graham cracker crust. The trick to making this cheesecake is to cook the filling enough so it sets without cracking the top. Then allow plenty of time for it to chill so you can slice it easily.
