    I havent rated this recipe or any other here before, spite of fact that i have fpund many wonderful recipes here. But now i have to give credits to this, its allways success, no matter where people come, all loves this. I have made this with Philadelphia and allso local equivalents cheese quantity varying from 790 grams to one kilo, white or brown sugar, vanilla essence or vanillasugar, allways good. Only thing is that sometimes i put crust cos my husband loves crust( me not so much). Thank you for this.

    Outstanding! I substituted all the sugar for Splenda but otherwise followed the recipe to the letter. DH wasn't so sure about a cheesecake without the graham wafer crust but, he was won over with this recipe. I used low fat cream cheese and fat free sour cream and this was an ideal dessert for South Beach. I'll be making this again, very soon! Thank you, Ann Arber.

    delicious made this for Valentines day. I was looking for an easy recipe that used only 2 packages of cream cheese and sour cream. I loved how it didn't require any flour. I put mine in a hot water bath and served with blueberry sauce. Nice fast keeper. Thanks :)
