I Love NY (Cheesecake)!

Last night we went out with "old" (as in long-time, 30+ years) friends...We went to Twigs and then back to our place for dessert. Brian and I were friends first (1978); Steph and John joined IBM 3 years later. We reminisced about times we spent together...NYC every summer as young IBM'ers to watch Yankee games and a trip to Italy and a misunderstanding about a tie (right, Brian? :-) Steph and I both have this recipe - no longer sure where it came from but it is one of the easiest and best recipes for cheesecake. Printable recipe here
 The crust
The filling
Ready for the oven 

 Turtle toppings (pecans, mini chocolate chips and caramel) or Almond Joy (chopped coconut M&M's, almonds and hot fudge sauce) were our choices

Delightful - a 5 star dessert!

P.S. - you don't need to be a New Yorker to love!


  1. A true NY Cheesecake can't be beat! I'd do the coconut version. Aren't long time friends the best? People who know your history, who have "grown up" with you through "adult-hood".

    What did you have at Twigs? I'm ready to go there!

  2. I had a shrimp/scallop bowl. We went last year with Steph and Brian and did the rock cooking. When we were in Germany with them in 1999 we went to a restaurant there that had cooking on a rock...


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! I appreciate you stopping by! Have a great day!
