Phil's Blue Ribbon Cheesecake - from Bon Appetit in the late 70's. It really does cook at that high temp for a short period of time. This is a favorite from my husband's grandmother. This picture looks horrible (I would never serve it this way), but it was the only online version of this recipe that I could find.
From the world-famous Magnolia Bakery, comes the ultimate buttercream icing recipe. With loads of butter, piles of confectioner's sugar and a generous glug of vanilla extract, how can you go wrong? It's simple, but spectacular. It goes great with their cupcake recipe, but it plays nice with almost any cake. (Photo: Michael Falco for The New York Times)
