Yum
בס"ד



I made this recipe of New York cheesecake to Shavuot, and t was so good that I started making it a lot.
The recipe was adapted from Good Food magazine and I've done few changes over the years, this is a must-try recipe.

I love this cheesecake recipe, it is just so good and so simple to make.
You can make this cheesecake with 3 Philadelphia packages or if you have a low fat cream cheese in the area, you can substitute about half of the amount with the low fat cheese. The cake you see in the photos is made with a mixture of cream cheese and low in fat cheese (5% low fat cheese), so even people who watch their diet, but still want a tasty cheesecake, can enjoy this cake. The cake with the low fat cheese is much lighter, but still very tasty.
