Hey dale! I look for this recipe yesterday and was so pleased to find you had it. My Mother used to make this, minus the nutmeg. I used the nutmeg and loved it. This really is a simple, easy but tasty Cheesecake! Nice and dense-no air in there and the sour cream topping is so yummy!!! Thanks so much for posting. Di
