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”.
