Elswet's Girl Party Cream Cheese Cake

READY IN: 3hrs 30mins
Recipe by Pagan

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION This is most excellent if you're a cheese cake fan! While this isn't a traditional cheese cake, this is a superior CREAM cheese cake recipe. It's home made cheese cake, but it's not New York style. It's Southern style and it has a wonderful lemony flavor. ABOUT THE ICING This is a very versatile recipe as you can finish this one off any way you like. You can use canned pie filling (any flavor), you can make a standard butter cream icing to drizzle over the top, or you can purchase a commercial cream cheese frosting, warm it in the microwave and drizzle THAT over the top. I like them all. *LOL*.

What caught me eye about this recipe is the really lousy rating it got prior to my vote; I just had to know how does one make a terrible cheesecake so I made it and I'm sitting here eating it now enjoying myself enormously! I am from NY and so I can say it certainly is not a traditional cheesecake as far as the texture goes but the cheese flavor with the luscious lemon absolutely comes through and I would serve this to company proudly any day! The only change I made was I used two sticks of butter and instead of the third stick I used 1/2 cup of light sour cream.
