New York Style Gluten Free Baked Cheesecake

July 30th is National Cheesecake Day in America, and what better way to celebrate than with a homemade gluten free cheesecake?! The New York cheesecake is rich, creamy dessert made with pure dairy, cream cheese, and fresh eggs. Encased in a sweet, crumbled (gluten free) cookie crust, this is a cake to live for!

New York Style Gluten Free Cheesecake from the Little Aussie Bakery & CafeIngredients:

  • 2 ½ cups crumbled GF cookies (we like snickerdoodle or anzac)
  • ½ cup melted butter
  • 3 cups softened cream cheese
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated orange rind
  • 1 teaspoon finely grated lemon rind
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • ¾ cup sour cream
  • ¼ cup lemon juice

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Crush the cookies until finely ground. If you have a food processor, use it to get an even finer ground.
  3. Add the butter and mix until combined.
  4. Press this mixture over the base and sides of a 9½ inch spring-form pan. Set aside in the refrigerator while you prepare the filling.
  5. With an electric mixer, blend the cream cheese, rinds and sugar until smooth.
  6. Slowly beat in the eggs one at a time until well incorporated.
  7. Add the sour cream and juice and blend well.
  8. Pour the filling into the chilled pan and bake for 1 hour 15 minutes.
  9. Remove from oven and cool for at least 15 minutes (for best texture, refrigerate before serving).
  10. Serve and enjoy! Throw some of your favorite fruit on top for an extra treat!
