    I have consulted three other sources.
    All three show
    3 pk (8 oz) cream cheese softened
    instead of
    2 pk (8 oz) plus 1 pk (3 oz) cream cheese softened
    One has the sugar amount as "1 cup", while the other two has it as "3/4 cup"

    More chesse will definitely make it denser ..

    I received the Betty Crocker Cookbook as a shower gift in 1972 and still own it. I make this cheesecake all the time. The difference is 3 cups of Sour Cream, not one. I've never seen another recipe that called for 3 cups of sour cream. It makes for a very cream cheesecake. Enjoy!

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees


    1 3/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
    1/2 cup melted butter
    1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

    Press on the bottom and two thirds up the sides of a 9 inch spring form pan (The original recipe did not instruct to bake the crust, but over the years I learned it held up better if it was baked first 8-10 mins)


    3 well beaten eggs
    2 8 ounce packages of soften cream cheese
    1 cup sugar
    1/4 tsp salt
    2 tsp vanilla
    3 cups sour cream

    Combine first five ingredients and beat until smooth. Blend in 3 cups sour cream. Pour into crust.

    Bake for 35-40 minutes. (Cake will rise and start to split around the edges. Once it cools, it will settle.) Cool about 1 hour.and then chill in refrigerator at least 6-8 hours before serving. (Better overnight)

    This is the recipe I follow and it's from the Better Homes & Gardens New Cook Book which is from the late 60's early 70's, it was my moms.

    Company Cheese Cake

    1 3/4th cup fine crumbled graham crackers
    1/4 cup finely chopped walnuts ( optional)
    1/2 tsp. cinnamon
    1/2 cup melted non salted butter

    3 large eggs- beaten smooth before added to cream cheese
    2 8 oz packages cream cheese softened
    1 cup sugar
    1/4 tsp. salt
    2 tsp. vanilla
    1/4 tsp almond extract
    3 cups dairy sour cream

    When mixing the filling you want to cream the cream cheese with the sugar, add beaten eggs, salt, vanilla, almond extract, and sour cream in that order.

    Bake at 375 degrees for 35 mins or just till it sets
    refridgerate at least 4-5 hours I usually let it chill for at least 6 hours
    This cheese cake will have a very light and smooth consitancy
    Everyone I've ever served this to has had nothing but compliments.

    To Auzzi: Regarding the first recipe: Thank you so much!! I have been looking for this recipe on and off for years. I had this recipe in a Betty Crocker cookbook I received when I got married. After years of abuse, I got another Betty Crocker cookbook for Christmas. My big error - throwing out the old cookbook assuming the recipes were the same. My dad's birthday is today and I am going to make this. I know it is the same recipe because I remember the weird number of cream cheese blocks. Thank you again!!!!!!
