Overview

Baking quite possibly the best cheesecakes in the universe, Junior's Restaurant is a legend in its own right. Located in downtown Brooklyn, Times Square and Grand Central Station in New York, this home away from home has been wooing New Yorkers since it first opened its doors on Election Day, 1950. And now, finally, they are willing to offer up the recipes that have had Brooklynites double-parking on Flatbush Avenue for generations. Included are 50 recipes for Junior's New York-style cheesecakes (all cream cheese, no sour cream, thank you, on a sponge cake crust), from the cheesecake that started it all (Junior's Original New York Cheesecake), to flavor twists like Banana Fudge, Rocky Road, and Pumpkin Mousse, to little cheesecakes meant just for one (called Little Fellas), to Junior's newest creation, Skyscraper Cheesecakes (think alternating layers of cheesecake and layer cake) in flavors like Boston Cream Pie, Lemon Coconut, and Carrot Cake. It's a cheesecake lover's delight!

    BEST CHEESECAKES!

    This book really makes amazing cheesecakes. I have made 100's of cheesecake trying to perfect the perfect one and this book really takes the cake! All of its tips and hints are very helpful but it is important to read the recipes instructions before starting because for anyone who knows hows to make an amazing cheesecake it takes time and all the cheesecakes in this book take a few hours but in the end it is worth it. If you are justing baking for fun or baking for someone special these cheesecakes will blow anyone away! Good luck!

    good and detailed cheesecake book

    The one innovation I made is to place the water bath on the bottom of the oven; if you sit your pan IN it, it keeps the cake from baking

    love it!

    I have a passion for making cheesecakes because of this book. I have tried several of them, and each one has been more delicious than the last. All the tips given inside the book, including the troubleshooting section are important to review before starting a recipe in order to guarantee a beautiful cake.
