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.

I made this last night for today. It is delicious AND creamy (considering I mixed all the filling ingredients at the same time, by accident). I was afraid it would come out lumpy but it didn't. Per earlier posts, I did add between 1/3 and 1/2 cup extra sugar to filling and baked in a water bath. It took about 30 minutes longer to bake than stated. Maybe because I baked it in a water bath, not sure? I cooled completely then refrigerated overnight. NOT one crack when I took it out of the refrigerator this morning! :)
my friend asked me to make her a cheesecake,although I cook I've never made a cheesecake.We bought 2 large graham cracker crusts and used this recipe.Turned out Fabulous!I added a couple of tbls.of fresh lemon juice on my 2nd try.Delish.I am now the cheesecake wizard of the family!
I made this for our holiday get together and it was a big hit. Everyone loved it. I made it in a 10 inch springform pan. I just added a little more graham crackers and butter mixture. The only thing I did different is I added another teaspoon of vanilla. Definitely will make again.
Not good at all. Has no flavor, soggy crust. Needs more sugar. I would not recommend.
First and Only NewYork cheesecake recipe I use. Been making it for ten years now and it NEVER disappoints. The richness..creaminess...denseness...I'm making one right now! 2/28 @1238 Guam time.
One word, AMAZING!
This was sooooo good! I've never made a cheesecake before and the recipe was simple and easy to follow. I did take the advice of others and used the water bath while baking it. Everyone at my party LOVED it!!! They've already requested that I make this again! I served mine plain while a choice of toppings on the side. Yummy!!!
I love this recipe! My family loved it! I like a thicker crust so I used more than 6 graham crackers. Also the photo in this recipe is nothing like the outcome of the cheese cake. In the photo the cheese cake is thin, but when I made it it was super thick. I suggest using 4 cream cheese instead of 5 if you don't want too much cheese in your cake. Otherwise it's not too sweet and not too plain! Also I topped it off with fresh sliced strawberries mixed with a little bit of strawberry glaze. Yum!
I've had to make this several times, recently tried substituting the Oreo cookies for the crust. everyone agreed, it was a bit too rich. Will continue to make it with "Extra" graham crackers for a thicker crust.
I made this for my family. And they just loved it, its simple to make and and very worth making.
