NY Style Cheese Cake


for the crust
3/4 c flour
3 tbls sugar
1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
6 tbls unsalted butter
1 slightly beaten egg yoke
1/4 tsp vanilla

for the filling
3 8-oz packages of cream cheese, softened
1 c sugar
1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice
1/4 tsp vanilla
2 tbls flour
1/4 tsp salt
2 eggs
1 egg yoke
1/4 c milk

To prepare the crust, combine 3/4 c flour, 3 tbls sugar, and 1/2 tsp lemon juice.
Cut the butter into the flour mixture until crumbly. Cut in the egg yoke and 1/4 tsp vanilla.
Pat 1/3 of the dough onto the bottom of an 8" cheese cake pan or springform pan.
Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 7 minutes until golden brown; cool.
Attach the bottom to pan and pat remaining dough onto the sides to a height of 1 1/2 inches.

For the filling, in a large mixing bowl beat together the cream cheese, 1/2 tsp lemon juice, 1/4 tsp
vanilla. Mix the 1 c sugar with the 2 tbls flour and 1/4 tsp salt and slowly add to the cream cheese mixture.
Add the 2 eggs and 1 egg yoke all at once and mix well. Add the 1/4 c milk mix until well combined.

Pour filling into crust lined pan and bake in a 450 degree oven for 10 minutes then reduce the oven
to 300 and bake for 50 to 55 minutes or until a toothpick stuck in the center comes out clean.
Let cool then chill for a couple of hours before eating.
