Thoughts

This is a New York style cheesecake. It is heavy, yet soft due to the egg whites. I slightly modified this recipe from the original as I found it to be a bit too sweet. I prefer it with the amount of sugar that I have listed above.

This is a recipe my mom got from her friend many years ago, and it has become my favorite cheesecake. It takes time to make it, but it most definitely worth it!

Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on it! Enjoy πŸ™‚
