New York Cheesecake: here's one of my favorite desserts. It is a dessert with various steps but extremely simple. However, it is necessary to respect above all the passage in the fridge (essential to compact the base). I find that the combination of cheese, jam and the sour note of berries is really perfect, while the biscuit gives a crunchy texture to the base that completes and enhances this dessert.
Ingredients for 10 people
(for a 20 cm cake pan)
For the biscuit base
- 200 gr of Digestive biscuits
- 100 gr of melted butter
For the cream cheese:
- 600 gr of Philadelphia Classico
- 100 ml of fresh cream
- 100 grams of sugar
- 2 whole eggs
- 1 yolk
- juice of half a lemon
- 1 sachet of vanillin
For the decoration:
- 2 tablespoons of berry jam
- 100 gr of berries of your choice
How to make New York Cheesecake
Put the biscuits in the mixer and blend the minimum to obtain a sand effect, pour the chopped biscuit into a bowl together with the melted butter and a pinch of salt. We mix and pour into a hinged pan lined on the bottom with a sheet of parchment paper. Level the chopped biscuit on the bottom well with a spoon and compact it well, making the surface smooth. We put in the fridge for 30 minutes. This will be the crunchy base of our New York Cheesecake.
In the meantime, prepare the cream cheese: in a bowl put the sugar, vanilla, the juice of half a lemon and the eggs, mix with the whisk, then add the Philadelphia cheese, mix and finally pour the fresh cream into the bowl, mix the everything.

We take the pan from the fridge and pour the cream cheese into the pan. Level with a spatula and bake for about 60 minutes at 160 °. To check the cooking we have to move the pan a little: if it vibrates like a pudding then it is not yet completely cooked. If the surface darkens too quickly, just place a sheet of aluminum foil on the grill upstairs
When cooked, let it cool, when it is completely cold, open the hinged pan and finish by decorating with jam and berries.
