The Ultimate Cheesecake

** Tastes way better than the photo makes it look!

You have probably stopped looking at this blog since nothing new has happened in about 4 months. Being pregnant and having morning sickness has really made me hate food which makes me sad. I've only cooked a handful of times in the past 4 months and really have not done any baking. But every year for my friends birthday I bake her a cheesecake. I thought about not doing one this year, but I really love her so I sucked it up and made
Tyler Florences Ultimate Cheesecake!

It looks like an ordinary cheesecake, but it's not! The cake part has lemon zest in it which really enhances all of the flavors and the crust has cinnamon in it, which makes it to die for! I will be putting cinnamon in every cheesecake crust from now on! And the cheesecake is made with a pint of sour cream which makes it so smooth and creamy. All of the flavors combined and the creamy consistency really made this one of the top cheesecakes I've made or tasted!

I gave my friend her cheesecake along with macerated strawberries to top it with. And then I made her cut it up so we could eat it and we all loved it! Her 5 year old son kept saying yum while he ate it, so you know it has to be good!

Matt said it was the best cheesecake he's ever had. I'm sure I'll be making it soon. I also will probably always put cinnamon in the crust from now on. I loved the flavor and the creamy texture of the cheesecake. Thanks again, it was gone the next morning. Who says you can't have cheesecake for breakfast?

Thanks so much for your support Amber, it meant so much to me. Yeah, this guy is pretty crazy. But apparently we're friends now...? So weird.

Okay, back up to your blog, the cheesecake is calling my name!
