    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1

    3. 3
      Press mixture in bottom and sides of 9 inch springform pan.

      Then reduce to 200 degrees to bake for 45 minutes.
    9. 9
      From here the cheese cake just needs to be chilled, but I recommend doing the following step if you have a few extra hours- Leave in warm oven, once you turn it off but leave door slightly open.
    10. 10
      Let sit and cool for 2 hours and remove from oven.
    11. 11
      Remove sides from pan and chill in refrigerator.

      I have been making cheesecakes for my husbands b-day for many years and this is definitely his and my favorite! I followed the directions as they were written and it turned out beautifully without any cracks!

      Fabulous. My hubby, who lived in New York for 13 years, says this is the best cheesecake he's had since he came home to Ohio in 1994. I pass it on as often as possible.

      super good and super easy. I use one kilo (1000gr.) of cream cheese, and 10 oz of sour cream, plus one teaspoon of potato flour. We don't have graham crackers in our area of the world so I used wholewheat cookies with a teaspoon of cinnamon. Definately a keeper!
