New York comes South!

My daughter and I baked this for our new neighbor that had helped us move in. The recipe made enough for two, so the second one went to my friends in North Carolina. So far, we have received much praise for the taste of this cheesecake. I love trying new recipes, and this one didn't disappoint.

New York-Style Chocolate Cheesecake

Easy to follow recipe & one of the richest tasting cheesecakes I've ever made. I'll be making this one again.

- JIM APLIN from ORLANDO, FL

excellent cheesecake

Everyone at the office said it was the very, very best...but it was a little different from the usual recipe I use. I'd try it again with darker chocolate, maybe a chocolate crust. Not sure about the sour cream topping, but it was better than I thought it would be when I poured it on; I had visions of scraping it off! Whipped cream would be good, too.

NY style chocolate cheesecake

This is the first time I've attempted a cheesecake and it was delicious! (at least I thought so.) Instead of using the topping in the recipe I used my home-made strawberry sauce. Yum!
