Substitute Sour Cream

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Countrywife

I saw this today on Paula Deen's show and HAD to try it since I had almost a quart of yogurt. It works. And I liked it better than using just yogurt. Cooking time is refrigeration time, preparation is time for butter to cool.

This saved the day for hubby's birthday cheesecake. I went for the sour cream, opened up the container, and only found about 1 Tbsp. The recipe called for 1 cup. Not only did this work well, but it made just the right amount too! Way to go. It did look a little different than regular sour cream, but that may have been because my "room temperature" was pretty cold, and the butter had virtually set up when I mixed it with the yogurt. It did blend in, but there was just something odd about the appearance.
