For every holiday in recent years I’ve been cooking cheesecakes. Every holiday a different cheesecake recipe, but that’s until I found this one. When I first found this recipe it was labeled as a ‘New York Cheesecake’. Now I’m not from NY (though I am a huge Giants fan) so I don’t know if this stays accurate to how they make cheesecakes in New York or not. One thing I do know is that this recipe is a definite keeper and will remain on the top of my favorite deserts list for years to come. It’s extremely easy to make, and the almond extract and macadamia nut crust give it a delicious and unique flavor. It goes great topped with cherry or blueberry pie filling, but you could use any fruit filling or none at all.
