    Cheesecake or New York Cheesecake?

    In North America, we often hear the terms “cheesecake” and “New York Cheesecake”. What’s the difference between the two? Well, regular cheesecake has a cookie crumb crust and a cream cheese, eggs, and sugar (sometimes an aroma too) filling, while the New York style cheesecake combines cream cheese with sour or fresh cream, as well as some lemon zest and juice. The latter therefore has a texture that’s more dense and rich. Sour or fresh cream substitutes quark cheese in the German version of the cheesecake.
