  • Summary

    The basic ratios of my cheesecake are in line with a recipe published in New York City over a hundred years ago, but with a portion of the cream cheese replaced by goat cheese. That combination mimics the texture of old-fashioned cream cheese—tangy, fresh, and a little crumbly too. It makes for a cheesecake that tastes perfectly authentic, but without the gumminess that can plague some recipes. Thanks to an initial burst of high heat, it puffs gently in the oven, creating a uniquely light but creamy consistency.

    Ingredients

    • 1 3/4 cups (7 ounces) graham cracker crumbs (store-bought, or make Whole Wheat Graham Crackers)
    • 2 tablespoons (1 ounce) unsalted butter, melted
    • 1/8 teaspoon Diamond Crystal kosher salt (half as much if iodized)
    • 2 pounds cream cheese (four 8-ounce packages), softened—about 70°F
    • 1 cup (8 ounces) fresh goat cheese (not precrumbled), softened—about 70°F
    • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
    • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
    • 1/4 teaspoon Diamond Crystal kosher salt (half as much if iodized)
    • 1/4 teaspoon orange flower water
    • 2 cups (14 ounces) sugar
    • 6 large eggs, straight from the fridge
    • 3/4 cup (6 ounces) heavy cream
