PHILADELPHIA New York Cheesecake Bars

PHILADELPHIA New York Cheesecake Bars recipe
photo by:kraft
New York may be the Big Apple, but when it comes to the city's iconic cheesecake, cherries rule the day. True to its heritage, the filling is super-dense and rich.

This was my first attempt at making a cheese cake and everyone in my family was so impressed with how it came out, they made me promise to make it again!!!
I usually make the recipe for New York Cheesecake that I found printed on the inside of a Philadelphia cream cheese box some years ago. Other than calling for four packages of cream cheese instead of the five used here, the two recipes are identical. Thinking the extra package of cream cheese would make an already good recipe even better, I made the recipe listed above in a 9-inch springform pan. It looked absolutely beautiful when I took it out of the oven, with not even the tiniest crack to be seen. After cooling, though, it was a different story entirely and there were two huge craters in the shape of an "X" right in the middle! Oh well, I thought, I'll just cut around them. That worked, but there was nothing I could do to hide the dry, crumbly texture of the cheesecake. I will not use this recipe again, but will continue to make the recipe using only four packages of cream cheese so I can ensure a cheesecake that tastes as good as it looks.
I have made many, many cheesecakes and this was by far THE BEST!!! It was creamy and yummy. Instead of using cherries I used a can of blueberry pie filling and it was great.
Great creamy taste, my whole family loved this dessert. Will make this again.
It did not come out to creamy.
This is delicious cheesecake. I make it for play dates and for my family and everyone can't get enough.
I have tried many cheesecake recipes, but this one has them all beat. It tastes just like the original one you actually get in New York. I have made this, and everyone who tastes it, raves about it. You won't be disappointed, believe me.
It has been a favorite of my family, and always have it at get togethers. you could also make it with blueberry topping as well.
Fabulous recipe! I made it for my small group at church and they loved it. My husband is very fussy about his cheesecake and he raved about it. Easy and delicious, that's my kind of recipe!!
I scored major points with this recipe; my family loved it. The recipe was easy to follow and tastes great.
