Sneak Peek at Tall and Creamy Cheesecake -- Tuesdays with Dorie

(before baking)

Just a quick peek at my cheesecake for TWD...I made it on Monday afternoon and it's resting in the fridge waiting for New Year's Eve :) I used all sour cream (when it gives the option of sour cream or cream) and plan to have a little "top your own cheesecake" station set up at our New Year's party. It rose a lot in the oven but sank back down during cooling. I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season and that your cheesecakes turned out perfectly, I can't wait to visit everyone and see all the variations!
Oh, forgot to add I skipped the waterbath -- I've made cheesecakes with and without waterbaths in the past and prefer not to do the waterbath. I don't mind the cracks on top :)

Whoa! 'Splodin' cheesecake! I must admit, I think cracks add to the aesthetics.

That is one TALL and beautiful cheesecake. I'm sure it will be a big hit! I used the water bath, had a little leak, and still had a crack on the top. I'm skipping it next time.

I'm coming too! Megan can drive me home.
I think it was a good idea to opt out of the waterbath. I think mine did leak in a bit.
Have a wonderful time, and a very Happy New Year!
