Holiday cheesecake

We haven't had one of these for awhile - a good New York style cheesecake courtesy of the Vienna Bakery in Barrington, RI.  This was the good dense cheesecake that is legendary for the Big Apple. It was not one of those lighter mousse types that are also good.  Crushed graham cracker base, ample and thick cheesecake layer with some kind of fruit on top. This particular type is favored by some of our foreign colleagues.
We know it'll be good!

Not seen in a bit - a New York Cheesecake!
The classic construction - graham base, cake layer and then fruit.
Rather than have a single type of fruit on top the Vienna goes with a fruit design or crown made of slices of fresh fruit like you see in a fruit tart or flan.  This time they went with strawberries, pineapple, orange slices and blueberries. 
Crown of fresh fruit on top!
Nice colorful selection!
Just about everything from the Vienna is always good and fresh and this, of course, was no exception. The cake was good and dense and not too heavy nor not to sweet. 
Thick and dense cake layer.

The fresh fruit made for a nice complement to the dairy based cake. Once again the Vienna bakery comes through and our appreciation of a good cheesecake was renewed.
