This cheesecake is awesome! Perfect creamy texture and great flavor. I make a crust similar to Cheesecake Factory and use part graham crackers, part Nilla wafers, and part chopped walnuts and pecans with just a couple TBSP of melted butter. I mix a couple TBSP of sour cream in with the cream cheese and only put a little bit of the sour cream/sugar mixture on top (not the whole cup). Sometimes, I add a splash of Limoncello to the batter as well. My favorite cheesecake recipe!

I have to tell you this is the best cheese cake I have ever had. I wanted to make a cheese cake for easter and I couldn't find my mothers' recipe so I came online hoping to find a good one! Well this one was great and was a big hit, everyone loved it and it was so easy to make! THANK YOU FOR MAKING OUR EASTER DESSERT GREAT! Kaylee J Boston, MA

I randomly figured out that the classic cheese cake recipe I had was lacking, the results were not always the same...the results ranged from creamy to too stiff. To get more consistent results I began to add whipping cream and sour cream. The general consensus of other reviewers for this recipe is that this is the best, I must agree! I use this recipe in either the mini pie shells (adjusting the cooking time), 9 inch graham cracker shell or double it and use 1/2 sheet to make a larger portion. I also add honey to taste to the crust, the filling, and the sour cream topping. At times I use brown sugar instead of white sugar achieving satisfactory results as well. My results have been consistent and family members totally satisfied - one family member at his entire cheese cake. *Note: I noticed that the generic brands of cream cheese had more consistent creamier results when the whipping cream and sour cream were added to the filling.

Absolutely a wonderful cheese cake. Our family is allergic to wheat so we could not use regular graham crackers, I used Graham Crackers (Gluten Free) as a gluten free graham cracker crust. My family is so excited that they can have cheese cake. thank you for posting a wonderful recipe that I can make with ease at home.

Do you ever know how to call it! This cheese cake is OUTSTANDING, & I found it quite easy to make! The taste of the cake plain is out-of-this-world, but I also had a piece with some caramel sauce, another with a fudgy sauce, & a third with...well, it's enough to say that it seems to go nicely with just about anything you might want to throw its way! Thanks for sharing it with us!

This is a delicious and easy to make cheesecake that I'll be making again. I've never tried a recipe that included sour cream but loved the bit of a tang it gave the cake. I also liked that it only used 1 lb of cream cheese. For personal preference I omitted the cinnamon in the crust because I wanted to serve it with a chocolate sauce. Lovely cake. Thanks, WI Cheesehead!
