Foolproof Cheesecake

READY IN: 1hr 55mins
Recipe by CaribbeanQueen

I really enjoy cheesecake and prefer a simple straightforward one. I don't need lots of fancy additions. But if you prefer a "dolled-up" version, throw something on top! My friend, Linda, gave me this recipe a long time ago. It always comes out perfect.

This was a good basic recipe. Not sure I tasted the sour cream. I added extra lemon juice for a little more lemon flavor. Thank you for sharing!
