TWD: Tall & Creamy Cheesecake

THIS IS THE BEST CHEESECAKE EVER!!!!! Okay, I just had to get that out of my system! I have a cheesecake recipe that I have used for years that I absolutely love. It is a wonderful New York style cheesecake. And, while I think it is awesome, this cheesecake was just OUT OF THIS WORLD!

Dorie's cheesecake calls for heavy cream or sour cream to be added to the batter. I decided I wanted to make a holiday version, so I substituted eggnog for the cream. OH MY GOODNESS! I know, I know. A lot of caps in this post, but I can't stop singing the praises of this cheesecake. I can't wait to try different variations with this. Amazing... just absolutely amazing!

Thank you, thank you, thank you to Anne of Anne Strawberry for chosing this week's recipe. Head over to her blog for the recipe (right now... what are you waiting for?). Definately check out the blogroll, too, because I'm sure there are fantastic cheesecake creations out there today!

I share your enthusiasm! It was the best cheesecake I have ever made. It looked and tasted like it belonged in a bakery (if I can say so myself! he he)

Oooh! Eggnog subbed for the cream sounds like a brilliant idea. It looks fabulous, and I think you liked it. Am I right? :o)

I am glad you LOVE this cheesecake I wonder what it would taste like in chocolate?

Looks divine, Christine! I'm amazed at how light and fluffy this turned out for many... It has to be the water bath, cause it's the only thing that I didn't do.
TOTALY perfect in your case, anyways!

Gee, I wondered if you liked this recipe. ;) I loved it, too. I am going to make variations on this. I have already made a second cheesecake with a gingerbread crust (from leftover xmas cookies)and topped it with cherries for a co-worker's bday. Happy New Year! xoxo
