The Frugal Gourmet's New York Cheesecake

Recipe by bengi

Very easy to make. Just throw the filling ingredients into the blender then pour over the crust. Delicious!

I have tried other recipes and came back to this one. This is the best recipe by far and the easiest. I went to make it the other day and discovered my sour cream had reminents of avocado in it so what to do? I had some plain greek yogurt in my fridge and had read u could substitute that for sour cream in a recipe. OMG it was better with the greek yogurt and the original is darn good. I will be making this with the yogurt from now on.
