I found this recipe from my mother's cookbook, but I do not know the origin of this recipe. This cheesecake is the best I have had and I've been told by one friend, it is better than their mom's.

This was so good! I looked all over for a recipe that had the sour cream layer because that is my mom's favorite. I made it in a 13x9 pan since that's the way she always liked it. Turned out perfect and delicous! Thanks for posting. Gina :)
