This really is one of the best no bake cheesecake's there is. I have been making this for years. The only thing that I do different is to also add some lemon juice from a real lemon. Maybe 1/8 or so of a cup. The lemon juice goes well with the sour cream and will not be over powering. Just gives the cheesecake a little boost. Try it once, and I think you will agree!
