  • CRANBERRY TOPPING.
  • Simmer all ingrediants over Medium heat, stirring occasionally, until most cranberries "pop", about 20 minutes. Cool, then chill completely.
  • CHEESECAKE.
  • reduce oven to 325 degrees. Beat cream cheese until smooth & fluffy. Gradually add sugar while beating, scrape sides often. Beat in cornstarch & vanilla. Add eggs 1 at a time, scraping well after each addition. Scrape into crust (only will go 1/2 way). Bake 30 minutes.
  • SOUR CREAM LAYER.
  • Stir sour cream, sugar & vanilla to blend. After cheesecake has baked, remove CAREFULLY & GENTLY dollop sour cream layer on cheesecae. Spread until even & return to oven for 30 minutes. (Mine took an extra 5-10 minutes to set.).
