  • Mix again till smooth and creamy.
  • Bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
  • Topping: Mix sour cream with white sugar to taste and again a few drops of almond extract to taste.
  • Top the cooked and cooled (slightly) cheesecake with the spread (not all the way to the edge).
  • Bake 350 degrees for 5 minutes; should be done but not brown.
  • Optional fruit topping: 1/2 package frozen raspberries in a saucepan and cover with water and some lemon juice.
