              Clinton St. Baking Company Cookbook: Breakfast, Brunch & Beyond from New York's Favorite Neighborhood Restaurant

Clinton St. Baking Company Cookbook is a beautifully composed cookbook. This cookbook is comfort food at it’s best. The many full color photos are enticing, and will have you drooling.  A sampling of the recipes inside~

Pumpkin Cheesecake

This cheesecake has such a nice silky texture!

Graham Cracker Crust

2 cups graham cracker crumbs

1/4 cup sugar

8 tablespoons butter, melted

1/2 teaspoon vanilla


3 8oz packages cream cheese, room temperature

1 cup sour cream, room temperature

1 cup sugar

1 tablespoon vanilla

1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon allspice

Pinch of ginger

Pinch of cloves

1 cup pumpkin puree

2 tablespoons heavy cream

3 eggs

Heat oven to 350 degrees. In a bowl mix the crust ingredients. Pat into a 10 inch springform pan. Bake for 15 minutes.

Mix the cream cheese , vanilla, sour cream, cream and eggs until smooth and creamy. Beat in the pumpkin and spices. Pour over crust and Bake for 1 hour. Open oven door for 10 minutes, then remove cheesecake. Let cool completely in the refrigerator before serving.

This cheesecake was really good. I did make a little change though, I like to bake my cheesecakes at 300 degrees for 1 hour.

I can’t wait to try more recipes!

I really enjoyed Clinton St. Baking Company Cookbook from cover to cover. It truly is a collection of great American cooking. A wonderful representation of flavors.

You can purchase Clinton St. Baking Company Cookbook at  Amazon or check with your local bookseller. Books make great gifts!
