- Directions :
To prepare cheese:
Preheaat oven 325 degrees. Employ a large roasting pan in the bottom 2/3 of the oven, heat the pan as well!
Prepare the springform pan by wrapping the bottom of the tray (outer) with a double layer of aluminum foil. Spray the pan with nonstick baking spray and line the bottom (inside) with a circle of parchment paper. Meanwhile, bring to a boil a kettle of water for later use.
Beat cream cheese with granulated sugar for 2-3 minutes until creamy. Add salt and eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Whisk together sour cream, heavy cream, and vanilla. Pour into a 9-inch springform pan. Place the tray in the center of the preheated roasting tray in the oven. Slowly pour boiling water into the roasting pan, until about 2.5 cm of water has risen to the sides of the springform pan.
Bake the cheesecake for 45 minutes. Turn off the oven and leave the cheesecake in the oven for an additional 30 minutes. Remove and cool completely on the counter.
When chilled, transfer the entire springform mold to the freezer for several hours or overnight. I put it in the freezer for about two hours. ** If using within 24 hours, feel free to refrigerate the cheesecake only!
