I made this cheese cake about 3 years ago and it turned out great. Just remembered about it this weekend and made it again and you guess what? The guests loved it. Highly recommended.
BEST Cheesecake EVER!!! Dont skip the sour cream layer...it is WELL worth it!!!Easy to prepare...hardest part is waiting on it to cool to eat!!!FABULOUS!!! Have made this recipe for ALL of our special occasions since 2006.THANKS!!!
Delicious!!!! I would highly recommend this recipe.
This was a very easy and delicious recipe!
Best cheese cake ever! Everyone I've made it for loved it!! And it can be very versitile!
This recipe was dry, crumbly, and did not have very good taste. The flavor was not rich and the cake was not creamy. Perhaps I did something wrong, but I have made cheesecakes before (which did not crack--this one did) and they tasted way better than this. I would not make again.
I thought this recipe was very easy to make.It has a wonderful flavor and does remind me of Cheesecake I used to get in NY many yearsago.

Life gets extra busy this time of year. Like everyone else, my family has the normal action-packed schedule…work, basketball practice, piano lessons, gymnastics, homework…not to mention, fitting in holiday activities like baking cookies, shopping, cutting down the tree… More ...
