Gluten Free New York Style Cheesecake

We have "extra" cream cheese laying around so it'd be perfect for a cheesecake obviously! ~duh~

Cheesecakes are one of the easiest thing to leave out gluten products so we've made these gluten free too. And because it is a leftover recipe, it consist of very little ingredients. We didn't have to go out to get anything, everything we got from our pantry and fridge.

The key to this cheesecake is to whip it well. And the sour cream topping is the perfect way to cut the richness of a New York style cheesecake so you can eat more!!! This does not need a water bath and all the cracks adds a rustic look even so the topping will mostly cover all the cracks to give you a perfect homey cake. Try it and let us know what you think~
