Last month, during the week before Mother’s day, I posted desserts that represented all the mothers in my life and bragged on them a bit. This week was supposed to be the Father’s day version of that.
Buuuuuuttt…. this week has sort of experienced a hostile takeover by 4th of July recipes, totally pushing my Father’s day posts out of the way. Which, you know, is kind of okay. I mean, we’re flexible here. I can roll with it. And red, white, and blue food is just so pretty– I just couldn’t resist!
It just means I’ll have an extra post or two running through the weekend. Any complaints?
That’s a rhetorical question. Don’t answer it.
So anyway. New York Cheesecake is my Father-in-law’s favorite dessert (according to my MIL), and I couldn’t have been more plumb-happy to whip up and devour another cheesecake! In fact, I think it’s nudged my ricotta cheesecake out of the “favorite cheeseecake” spot. It’s so smooth and creamy! *swoon*
Although… if I’m being honest, my favorite cheesecake will always be the cheesecake on my fork at the moment. So it’s pretty much a big, fat joke for me to even attempt to play favorites here anyway.
Despite my inability to pick a favorite cheesecake, I’m telling you this recipe is good. The sour cream makes it INCREDIBLY smooth. The whipped cream on top hides any imperfections (taking away any cheesecake-making anxieties) and also creates a killer taste combo with the strawberries. Perfect for summertime!
Thanks to my Father-in-law for prompting me to make this heavenly cheesecake. And an even bigger thanks to him for being such a great influence in my husband’s life. My husband is an incredibly hard worker, ridiculously dependable, and always willing to serve, which are all traits he learned from his dad. And I am eternally grateful.
So. In a nutshell… the moral of today’s story is: hug a dad and eat some cheesecake!
