I lived on a dairy farm when I was young and my mom always had a lot of sour cream to use. She never wasted any, and this cheesecake was one of my family's favorites. It's great topped with blackberry sauce.
"I'm a college student who was introduced to the kitchen when I was very young," reports Michael Gagliardi of Bell Canyon, California. "My favorite thing is baking desserts—because I like the sweet reward at the end."
Combining two of our favorite desserts, this is a traditional holiday treat in my Italian family. We're always certain to pass down the recipe to the next generation.—Marie McConnell, Shelbyville, Illinois
