A high and creamy, dense cheesecake that's creamy but not cloying. This is a classic that takes well to many variations.  riginally New York Cheesecake used a sweet tart or a shortbread cookie dough but few people, even restaurants use that approach anymore - it's buttery graham crust all the way. A great New York cheesecake features a wonderful, sweet, baked-on-top sour cream topping so that you slice through this extra topping, into creamy cheesecake. I prefer a water bath with this cake but a slow bake is also fine or the hot oven to start, and then a longer sojourn at moderate temps. Let it cool in the oven to avoid cracks. Oh, btw, you can also sub thick Greek style yogurt for the sour cream, in a New York minute update.
