Deli NY Style Cheesecake........
My favorite cheesecake in the whole world. New York deli style cheesecake.
1/4 cup butter, melted and cooled
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 tablespoons cornstarch
2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups sour cream
2 tablespoons lemon juice (optional)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Move an oven rack to the middle of the oven.
Beat the cream cheese, ricotta cheese, and sugar in a large mixing bowl with an electric mixer until well combined. Beat in the eggs, one at a time. Add the butter, flour, cornstarch, and vanilla extract; mix until well combined. Fold in the sour cream and lemon juice. Pour the mixture into an un-greased 10-inch springform pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour. Turn off the oven and leave the cheesecake in the oven for 2 more hours. Remove from oven and let cool completely. Run a thin spatula around the edge of the cheesecake before springing open the pan to remove. Serve at room temperature or cold; refrigerate leftover cake.
