Delight cheesecake purists with the ultimate version of a classic American dessert. Handcrafted by chef Jamie Cantor and her team at L.A.'s Platine Bakery, this authentic New York-style cheesecake is gently baked in a water bath to give it a wonderfully smooth, rich texture. Flecked with bits of Nielsen-Massey vanilla beans, the filling of fresh, tangy premium cream cheese and sour cream contrasts with the delicate crunch of the traditional graham cracker crust. Keep the cheesecake in your freezer, then simply thaw and serve as an easy, elegant last-minute dessert for a dinner party or other special occasion. Cake is 8" diam., 2 1/2" high; 3 lb. 8 oz. (serves 12-16). Shipped frozen. Made in USA. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.
