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 oz. honey graham crackers (8 oz. is about 12 crackers)
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar (packed)
  • 1/4 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp. salt (for crust)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter
  • 2 lb. brick-style cream cheese (room temperature)
  • 1 1/8 cups granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp. 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.

    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!
