New York Style Cheesecake- Guest Post

I'm so grateful to Amanda for guest posting for me today. I hope you'll take a minute to visit her blog! I'm still visiting my family in Florida and will be back to blogging later on this week. Check out this delicious cheesecake, one of my favorite desserts!

Hi! My name is Amanda and I blog over at Kids and Cabernet.  I blog about my kids, life, and my favorite wine finds - sometimes a mamma just needs a bottle glass of wine ;).  I was so honored when Christina asked me to guest post!  I love her blog - her recipes always look SO good.  Let's see if I can hold a candle to her baking skills!

I'm not a huge dessert person, but one thing I'll never turn down is cheesecake!  I was so happy when my mother-in-law shared this recipe that she's been making for years.  It is a very easy recipe to make.  The only trick that I've learned when making a cheesecake is that you really need to make sure that it's blended really good so that your cheesecake doesn't come out lumpy.

New York Style Cheesecake
4 – 8oz cream cheese squares
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups sour cream (add last)

1 cup gram cracker crumbs
2-3 tbsp melted butter
1/8 cup sugar 
Mix all together and press into bottom of 10” spring form pan

Preheat oven to 350*.  Put graham cracker crust at bottom of greased and floured pan. Combine all ingredients except sour cream in large bowl and mix until smooth (it won’t be totally smooth, but pretty close).  Add sour cream and blend.  Pour into pan and bake until edges of cake are golden brown and center is moist (about 1hr. 15min.).  Let cool completely and then refrigerate over night.  Add topping if desired.  

For the topping I like to take berries, add sugar, cover and let it sit for a few hours.  This draws the liquid out of the berries and makes for a delicious, fresh and sweet topping. 

I hope you all enjoy this recipe as much as I have!
