Based on the most decadent recipe in The Joy of Cheesecake, this deep-dish delight is baked long and low to achieve a dense texture and a cake so delicious we halted our search for the ultimate New York style cheesecake when we tried it. The heavy texture is offset by a brightness from lemon juice, and a hint of rum adds a complexity to the slow-baked flavor. It’s not a quick cheesecake to make, but every bit worth the time and effort.
