Writer/director Nora Ephron published this recipe for cheesecake in her novel Heartburn years ago. She says she got it off the back off a package of Philadelphia cream cheese.
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Mix cream cheese with the eggs, 1 cup of sugar and vanilla. Pour into graham cracker crust and bake 45 minutes. Remove from the oven and cool 15 minutes.
- While pie is cooling, mix sour cream with 1/2 cup sugar. Spread gently over the top and bake 10 minutes more.
- Cool and then refrigerate for several hours.
