This recipe has been handed down through the generations and I consider myself very lucky to have gotten a copy. Takes a long time, but it is so worth it. It’s a huge hit if you have to bring a dessert to a party– who doesn’t like cheesecake? I’ve tried making it more ‘diet-friendly’ but that just doesn’t seem to work out. I was able to swap out low to no fat on the cheeses and sour cream, but when I tried switching out the sugar for splenda or equal, it didn’t rise. But, as long as you don’t overindulge, it can’t be that bad for you – and you only live once, you have to enjoy excellent tastes!
