Review This Recipe
I reviewed the wrong recipe. This is the good one!
This recipe made the best cheesecake I've ever served. Instead of glazing the cheesecake with sour cream, I accidently put it in with the recipe before I baked it. This actually turned out wonderfully, though. The cheesecake had a light and creamy taste to it (which surprised me because there are so many rich ingredients in here). I made this for my dad's birthday a week ago, and all of the guests just raved about it. And even though they had it only last week, and they're already insisting I make it again for someone else's birthday!
