I just typed it out, thought I would share the recipe that has made me famous with my loved ones. It was definitely a lot of trial and error. But errors were still yummy. I started with a recipe from AllRecipes.com called "Chantal's New York Style Cheesecake" .
It is a good recipe of you want to try it. I have since changed things up and it has resulted in this recipe.
*I recommend using a LARGE food processor in lieu of a stand mixer. I read a baking book I got from Sur La Table that suggested it. Saying stand mixers whip air into food. Which for a smooth dense cheesecake is bad. Food processors do not, however.
