New York Cheesecake

My first attempt of making cheesecake..It was a big cracks on the surface..maybe because I set the oven too high...But I learned a lot from it!!

Creamy Cheesecake (12 servings)
  • 4 packet Philadelphia soft cheese
  • 1 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1 tbs vanilla extract
  • lemon zest
  • Place the cream cheese in a bowl and blend on a slow speed, cream the cheese until it is soft.
  • Whisk the flour and sugar together. Pour this mixture into the cream cheese and scrape the bowl to prevent lumps from forming.
  • Pour the wet ingredients into the mixing bowl. The mixer should be set at a low speed for the entirety of this process to prevent the air from mixing with the batter.
  • The texture of the finished batter should be smooth and glossy.
  • Pour the batter into a baking pan...then bake at 150 degrees for 1 1/2 hour.
