My family appreciated very firm New York style cheesecake. How does one make it firm, almost the consistency of fork cutting a banana? I was thinking less or no sour cream and more eggs.

    Less that what, exactly? Also if you want a New York style cheesecake why not look for a New York style cheesecake recipe instead of trying to modify one you already have? – Steve Chambers May 22 '19 at 21:17
  • Without an existing recipe we will have a hard time suggesting modifications :) can you edit to give some more details about what you typically cook? – Erica May 23 '19 at 8:40

If you're making a no bake cheesecake, as I usually do, make sure you use full fat ingredients as they will help it firm up. You can also add gelatin to make it firmer
