Serves: 12


  • 1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 16 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 1 dash salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup Daisy Sour Cream


Crust: Stir together graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, and 1/4 cup sugar in a medium bowl. Press into the bottom of a 9-inch spring-form pan. Refrigerate the crust while making the filling. Filling: Combine the cream cheese, 2/3 cup sugar, salt, beaten eggs and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla in a medium bowl. Beat at medium speed for 5 minutes. Pour the filling into the spring-form pan over the graham cracker crumb crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Cool 30 minutes before adding the sour cream topping. Topping: Mix the sour cream, 3 tablespoons sugar, and 1 teaspoon vanilla together in a small bowl. Pour and spread on top of the slightly cooled cheesecake. Bake for 5-10 more minutes at 350 degrees. Cool to room temperature and then place in refrigerator to chill before serving.

I'm making this now, and poured the sour cream mixture onto the cheesecake, following the instructions carefully... and the cake collapsed under the weight of the sour cream. The result was the cheesecake middle piled up the sides and the sour cream filled the middle, i've scooped it out to the best of my ability but, probably in the recipe there should have been further explanation as to how that should work? Now it's obvious to me the cheesecake was not set up, though baked and cooled. Maybe the topping has to be applied a certain way, not just poured on.

I have made this about 10 to 15 times now and every time It has turned out perfect. The only addition I added was lemon zest to batter. I get compliments on how good it is.

I have been using this recipe for the past 2 years and will bring it to any event. Everyone loves it! My sister hates cheesecake but LOVES this! I highly recommend this recipe! I cut back on the sugar in the sour cream topping... instead of 3 tablespoons I put 2. I actually don't add any sugar to the graham cracker crust and it's perfect..

I use the lower fat sour cream and cream cheese. Also cut back on sugar in the crust and fillings since it's always served with a fruit topping. I prefer the sugar to the corn syrup varieties. Been making this recipe for years for holidays and family events. Never any leftovers.

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!!
