Sinfully Delicious New York Cheesecake with Chocolate Ganache Drizzle


This recipe written and provided by my sister, Jen. Jen is a wife, mother of 4 and an AMAZING baker! 

In the world of desserts, Cheesecake is queen. Though it takes some time and effort to bake the perfect cheesecake, the reward is nothing short of delicious. Whether you are headed to a summer party, having friends over for dinner, or just want to surprise the family for a wonderful after-dinner treat, you will “wow” the crowd with this take on New York cheesecake topped with a chocolate ganache drizzle.

Whenever I make cheesecakes people always ask, “How did you keep is so moist?” “How do you keep it from cracking?” “What makes your cheesecakes so creamy?” Over my years of making cheesecakes I’ve tried a lot of different suggestions from home cooks and famous cooks and I’ve added several “cheesecake tips” to make your cheesecake a mouthwatering success.

Jen made this delicious New York Cheesecake for my surprise baby “sprinkle” a few weeks ago, and I told her she MUST let me share the recipe! Cheesecake is my favorite dessert, and I’ve never had one that was so moist and tasty before. Trust me, you will LOVE this recipe! Taking a picnic or attending a get-together this Memorial Day weekend? Take this decadent cheesecake with you, and your dessert will be the star of the party!

The next dessert she is going to bake is this Cuban flan recipe. I hear it’s the best Cuban dessert out there, so I’m super excited to try it! What’s your favorite dessert?
