New York Cheesecake

So for New Years, Normy and I spent it with his family. His Grandmother came in from Puerto Rico and his Aunt (Titi) came in from The Keys. So I wanted to make a cheesecake. Normy’s Mom was making us all dinner so I wanted to contribute by making a cheesecake…This is what I went with…

Recipe

15 graham crackers, crushed
2 tablespoons butter, melted

4 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese

Turn the oven off, and let cake cool in oven with the door closed for 5 to 6 hours; this prevents cracking. (I did this, and mine still cracked)

Chill in refrigerator until serving.

I topped mine with Blackberries, because that is what they had on sale…
