casadei – I don’t know if I’m much help to you, but I’m a purist when it comes to cheesecake – At the risk of sounding like an old crank, I don’t want any flavors, fruit toppings, etc., just the plain old fashioned kind made with cream cheese and sour cream.
I don’t know the words to describe it, the tangier(?) the better. This style of cheesecake must have a name(original flavor, NY style?). I suspect there’s a lot of us out there that feel the same way.
