Cheesecake

Today all I am going to do is tempt with this photo. That’s right, no recipe. (Insert evil laugh.) Just trust me …it’s worth the wait. I know I am heartless baker. How dare I post a cheesecake with a tart cherry topping and no recipe? Did I mention this is a New York style cheesecake with no annoying bottom crust? Yeah, no graham crackers here baby!

The cheesecake before you is rich, creamy and has a hint of vanilla. Did I mention the missing graham cracker crust? I like my cheesecake sans the crust. I’m in it for the artery clogging, stroke inducing, and sugar high that is classic cheesecake.

I rarely have cheesecake because I would rather live a long and healthy life. Therefore, when I do make or have a slice of cheesecake, I don’t want or need graham crackers to detract from it.

So please just hang on for a couple more days and I’ll show you the light that is classic New York style cheesecake …sans the crust or “a la Gigi Cakes”.

Crust annoying? The bites with the crust are my favorite parts of the cheesecake. I do look forward to the recipe though. I'm sure I can make it with a crust! :)

What! You're crazy. I LOVE graham cracker crusts. I'm always disappointed when the crust is too thin. Your cheesecake looks really delicious and it's on such a cute cake stand!
