This is a great cheese pie recipe from my Mother-In-Law. It's actually easy to make and the sour cream topping is great.

  3. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes at 350 degrees. (Oven Temps. vary).

This is very similar to a traditional New York Style cheesecake but lacks lemon juice and uses more vanilla. Baked in a springform cheesecake pan, ours browned around the edges before the center was set; it was delicious anyway but would have been better if cooked longer and at lower temperature. A family member suggested putting a pan of water in the oven with it; we haven't tried that but it seems sensible. Thanks for an easy and tasty cheesecake, which was served at our Easter family dinner. Made for Pick A Chef, April 09.
