Using heavy cream instead of sour cream in the batter makes this one of the richest and smoothest New York style cheesecakes you'll ever eat. Plan ahead - this cheesecake needs at least 6 hours to chill before serving. The recipe is a Yummly original created by Sara Mellas.

    Fantastic cheesecake! No one could tell it was my first time making it if they weren’t in the kitchen. I did opt out of the cream cheese icing and used strawberries to top it instead.

    I made this for my family and they loved it! My dad is a chef and he said it was the best cheesecake he had ever tasted. I'm only 12, and I thought that this was pretty straightforward and simple. Not to mention delicious. This was the first time I'd made a cheesecake and it turned out great but there was a crack, and it took all day. Still wonderful and worth the time
