Recipe by Countrywife
Adapted from a recipe I found in Sunset magazine around 1970. Back in those bad old days there were no frozen cheesecakes and recipes for cheesecake were few and far between. My mother loved cheesecakes and was thrilled when I found a recipe. This makes a firm, dense product. Preparation time doesn't include cooling.
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 1⁄4 cup granulated sugar
- 1⁄2 cup sour cream
- 2 eggs
- 1 prepared graham cracker pie crust
- 1⁄2 cup sour cream (mixed with 2 tbsp sugar) (optional) or 1 cup cherry pie filling (optional) or 2 cups fresh strawberries (optional) or 2 cups prepared Jello gelatin (optional)
