I swear this cheesecake recipe originated in the kitchens of Mount Olympus. The crust is perfect, the filling creamy and light, and the simple sour cream topping is fantastic. With a delicate hint of lemon (increase the amount of lemon extract if you prefer a stronger flavor) and a flawless appearance (no need to worry about cracks, since the topping will cover them), this cake is just right to finish out a special dinner. To increase the "wow factor," spoon fruit compote on top just before serving. This scrumptious dessert is also very easy to make and tastes just as good when made with low-fat and/or fat-free ingredients -- you've got to try it! Because of the long amount of time required to cool and chill the cake before serving, I'd recommend that you make this a day ahead of time. Enjoy!
