The secret to New York–style cheesecake is the inclusion of heavy cream or sour cream. Rich, dense, smooth and creamy, it's the classic cheesecake most of us know and love. The addition of sour cream, either in the body of the cake or added as a sweetened topping, can add even more elegance to this dessert favorite.
