Very easy to make, but does tend to crack, so if I am serving it for a dinner party, I use a topping. Very easy to make, but does tend to crack, so if you are serving it for a dinner party, use a topping.

Waaaaay too sweet and even after chilling it for a day it was slop. Cheese cake needs flour.....this isn't cheese cake. Maybe it could be a frozen concoction but it is still way too sweet.

I have made this cheese cake more times then I can count. My family absolutely adores it! The sour cream layer cuts the sweetness so perfectly to make this cheesecake delightful!!

My family loves this cheesecake! We eat it on birthdays, thanksgiving and Christmas. Super yummy. The only things I do different is use a little bit less sugar for the sour cream topping and a premade graham cracker pie crust. Best cheesecake ever...so good!

I blend a few spoonfulls of pumpkin in and spice with nutmeg and cinnamon! It is delicious! I also do one with instant coffee in it. I've had people ask to buy them for their holiday parties! I use instant pie crusts though! A chocolate crust for the coffee one. Great recipe!

I substitute 8 oz of goat cheese for 8 oz of cream cheese (50/50 blend). Many of these kinds of goat cheese come in 8 oz "logs". The cheesecake doesn't taste like goat cheese, but adds a great tangy flavor to it. I am now starting to experiment with higher percentages of goat cheese. I did not like the goat cheese with honey. That was way too strong.

Best cheesecake ever according to my grandkids. We substitute Keebler's Sandies cookies for graham crackers, and serve with fresh strawberries. Yum!
