Years back I was a server in a good restaurant that had a pastry chef who made the best Cheese Cake I had ever tasted.
I love good cheesecake. But after trying just about every cheesecake I have come across in stores and bakeries, nothing has come close to the cheesecake I remembered.
I will try to describe it how I remember it (20+ years ago)
The cheesecake was rich, but not overly sweet.
Texture was almost crumbly.
Almost a crust, but not different, was same as rest of cheesecake.
Light golden brown coloring.
I hope I am making sense.
I was hoping for a recipe that would produce a cheesecake similar to what I remember.
Then I could say I was going to make cheesecakes for gifts, but then eat them myself instead.
