The Cheesecake Factory may have a whopping 35+ flavors of cheesecake on its menu, but it's the original New York-style cheesecake that'll forever make our hearts flutter. Rich, dense, and tangy, it's so good that we developed our own recipe inspired by this decadent treat.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (160 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch springform pan with cooking spray.
Step 2
In a food processor, finely ground the Vanilla Wafers (1/2 cup), Graham Crackers (1/2 cup) and Almonds (1/2 cup).
Step 3
Thoroughly mix together the nuts, graham crackers, vanilla wafers, and Butter (2 tablespoon) in a medium bowl.
Step 4
Pat mixture into prepared pan, pressing firmly into bottom and about 1 1/2 inches up the sides.
Step 5
Using a stand or hand mixer, beat the Cream Cheese (24 ounce) on low until light and fluffy. Add the Granulated Sugar (1 1/3 cup) a little at a time and beat until creamy.
Step 6
Add Large Egg (5) one at a time, beating until smooth after each egg.
Step 7
Add the All-Purpose Flour (1/4 cup), Vanilla Extract (2 teaspoon) and Lemon Juice (2 teaspoon) and mix well. Add the Sour Cream (16 ounce) and beat well. Firmly tap the bowl against the counter to release bubbles from the filling.
Step 8
Pour the cheesecake filling into the springform pan, shaking the pan to ensure that the filling is evenly distributed. Cook on the oven's middle rack for 1 hour and 30 minutes, or until firm.
Step 9
Remove cheesecake from oven, and let cool completely on the countertop before transferring to the refrigerator to chill for at least 12 hours.
Step 10
To make a blueberry compote for a topping, combine the Fresh Blueberries (1 cup), Lemon Juice (2 tablespoon) and Lemon (1 teaspoon) zest in a small saucepan set over medium-high heat. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes.
Step 11
Add the Corn Starch (1/2 tablespoon) and cook until the blueberries have broken down and the sauce has thickened slightly.
Step 12
Serve cheesecake plain, with whipped cream, fresh fruit, or warm blueberry compote.
