Carnegie Deli's huge pastrami sandwiches were selected as the best in New York by New York Magazine in 1975, but it's the cheesecakes, which can be shipped anywhere in the country, that really put this famous deli on the map. The secret to accurately cloning a traditional New York cheesecake is in creating the perfect not-too-sweet sugar cookie crust and varying the baking temperature so that you get a nicely browned top before cooking the cheesecake through. Get ready for the best deli-style cheesecake to ever come out of your oven.

Don't modify a thing. It is perfect perfect perfect. I served with mascerated strawberries. My gosh, so good. Pro Tip: Beat the hell out of the cream cheese mixture. No lumps. Whip it on med high speed for at least 2-3 minutes. Also, at the end of baking, the top will be pretty brown ---that's ok, because the inside is creamy dreamy perfect.

Delicious! Much more moist than a typical New York style cheesecake. I have never tasted the original, but have to say that this is one of the best cheesecakes I've ever had... Yummm. You owe it to yourself and your family to make this. I'm not a baker and the recipe is easy to make but tastes like you have been baking for years!
