    Countrywife's Note:

    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.

      Wow, this is an amazing substitute! I couldn't be bothered going back to the store when I ran out of sour cream, so I decided to try this. I let both the butter and yogurt get to room temperature before mixing together, and they mixed together really well. I was amazed at how well it turned out. It tastes exactly like sour cream to me, and I couldn't notice any difference in texture. I will definitely use this in the future when I need to use up some plain yogurt or when I run out of sour cream. Thanks so much for the great recipe!
