Here's fluffy, light, and perfect cheesecake, done the New York way. Plan ahead for this one - for best results, this cheesecake needs at least 6 hours to chill after baking. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Sara Mellas.


  • butter (softened, for pan)
  • 8 ounces honey graham crackers (8 oz. is about 12 crackers)
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar (packed)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt (for crust)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 pounds brick-style cream cheese (room temperature)
  • 1 1/8 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt (for filling)
  • 4 large eggs (at room temperature)
  • Did you make this?

    It was pretty good. It had a bit of a sublte strange flavor to it though, almost bitter.

    Great!!! Definitely make again!!
    Extremely delicious cheesecake! But, to get 330 calories per slice you have to cut that 9" cake into 20 slices.

    It was a little messy (for me) and especially since it’s my first time doing it, but it was lovely! I had read a comment about it coming out a little bit like creme brûlée on the top at least, and mine happened the same, but it’s delicious. And I’m a beginner in the kitchen, so following the videos and instructions, everything worked out!

    AMAZING. Our cheesecake came out looking like crème brûlée a little, but it tasted so good. Would definitely recommend.
