    This is a reprint from my thread for the ten item cheesecake.;f


    My mother-in-law had a little old Jewish lady for a landlord in Brooklyn and it was said around Atlantic Ave. that she had a cheese cake that the Carnegie Deli would kill for. Well she NEVER gave the recipe to anyone and EVERYBODY wanted it. Well my mother-in-law took care of this lady for years and when she died everyone thought that the recipe was gone for good. Lo and Behold my mother-in-law received it from her will and she never shared it with anyone either. Then a few years ago she gave it to my wife. My wifes boss was a big wig with a major company who used to get cheese cakes shipped in from Chicago that he paid $50.00 for. My wife made him this cake one year and he stopped ordering the cake from Chicago as he said this was the BEST! Get ready to blow in everybodies doors. Remember you owe me. I want to know what your families think. This cake is from the 1940's around the time of World War II.

    Ingredients:
    2 8oz. packages of cream cheese softened at room temperature
    16oz. cottage cheese (smooth and creamy is best)
    1 3/4 cups of sugar
    4 eggs slightly beaten
    1 tsp. vanilla
    2 tbs. lemon juice
    3 tbs. flour
    3 tbs. corn starch
    2 sticks of melted butter
    1 pint of sour cream

    Instructions: (Follow these to the letter)
    Cream the cream cheese with an electric mixer. Rub cottage cheese through a sieve and add to cream cheese. Mix til creamy. Add sugar, eggs, lemon juice, and vanilla while mixing. Next add flour and corn starch together to this mixture while still mixing. Add melted butter while still mixing. Finally add sour cream. Scrape down sides of bowl and mix til creamy. Pour batter into 8 or 9 inch Springform pan. Bake at 350 degrees until top rim rises to top of pan and turns light brown. Caution DO NOT overcook. It should be a light brown around rim not at center of cake. This usually takes from 50 to 60 minutes. Shut oven off and open door. Let cake sit in oven at least 3 hours with door ajar. It will fall back down (don't panic). Put in refrigerator and don't remove from Springform pan until fully chilled for a few hours before serving. To remove from pan run a butter knife around perimeter of cake between cake and pan to loosen. Remove outside ring of pan only, leave bottom. You may top with confectioners sugar, or any kind fruit (cherries, blueberries, strawberries etc.), or have it my favorite way- Just plain! This is called the TEN ITEM CHEESE CAKE. It is the best you will ever, ever eat. Believe me. Let me know how you like it. Eddie (Your gonna love this!)

    Edited for spelling correction! Thanks Allan!;)

    ^7 ^7 I will be trying that Eddie. I got lazy and bought a Cheesecake Factory cheesecake from Sam's Club for Thanksgiving. I have a recipe for Chocolate Cheesecake that I'll have to dig up and post here. It is to die for. Your recipe has history though. That is such a cool story. :)

    No grover, no bottom crust at all. Just like it's written. Like I said you could throw strawberries, blueberries, or pineapple on top to suit your tastes. We like it just as it is. ;f

    ohh yeah, a siv is like a strainer. basically you want to get all the lumps out and make it a smooth paste, my guess would be like a ricotta consistency.

    You got it TEAK! A Siv is a metal strainer where the holes are small(almost looks like a metal netting). You'll see Emerill use one when he strains something out of boiling water if he doesn't use a collander.;)

    OK Eddie, back to grade school for you. Sometimes words are NOT spelled the way they sound. ;)

    I'm not old enough for Alzheimers yet, I still just have Sometimers. ;g

    I've made this cheesecake three times and it's real good...
    It's fluffy, creamy and flavorful...
    I use Splenda so it's more Atkin's friendly, but I can taste the Splenda, so I wish I could
    follow Eddie's recipe exactly, I know it would be better...

    I bought the ingredients yesterday for another one.

    Not that it needs to be improved, but I'm gonna tweak this next one a little, trying to get a denser,
    creamy, flavorful result and less fluffy...
    An extra package of cream cheese I'm thinking, with a little extra sugar and vanilla... We'll see...

    ;c

    Eddie, made the Cheesecake the night of the 30th and ate it last night. Just FYI, at 5500 feet, the recipee worked great, baked for 62 minutes. I did add a thin graham cracker crust with some spices, really accented the cake well. Topped with strawberries, but it was great just as it is.

    Also, did not have a sieve, so I just put the cottage cheese in the blender and ran it until smooth. Worked just fine, and probably less work.

    You are right, it is the best cheesecake I have ever had and everyone raved about it. With elk tenderloins and my skin on mashed potatoes, my food was a hit at our party. THANKS!

    Mark, I'm glad you liked it. It's funny you said that about running the cottage cheese through a blender. This Christmas we ran it through the Cuisinart. Perfect! Isn't it great when we improvise and it works out great.;f It is great whether you top it off or eat it plain. This year my wife made a topping out of Raspberries and raspberry jam. Yummmm! Thanks buddy!;)
