Prepare a 10-inch springform pan.
Grease lightly with unsalted butter.
Line the pan with parchment paper on the bottom and along the sides.
Set aside.

Preheat oven to 400 F.


Prepare an electric mixer.
Add 2 lbs of softened cream cheese and 1 1/2 cups of granulated sugar.
Let it whisk on low speed until the batter is smooth and sugar is dissolved.
Add one egg at a time, mixing in the egg until well incorporated before adding another egg.
Slowly add 2 cups of heavy cream into the batter while continuing to mix using the electric mixer.
Add 1 tsp of vanilla extract.
Season with 1 tsp of Kosher salt.
Once well combined and smooth, stop mixing.
Sift in 1/3 cup of all-purpose flour into the batter.
By using an electric mixer, mix the flour on low speed until well combined.
Once you reach desired consistency, transfer it into the parchment-lined springform pan.
Spread evenly.
Place it inside the preheated oven.
Let it bake for 60-65 minutes.
After an hour or so, remove it from the oven.
Once the top is burnt and the center is wobbly, cheesecake is ready.
