My mother-in-law got this recipe from an Italian friend many years ago. I added the chocolate-nut crust. It is our very favorite dessert. —Gloria A. Warczak, Cedarburg, Wisconsin

"Mistake?? 2 cups (16 ounces each) sour cream. Don't you mean 8 oz ea since 1 cup has 8 oz."

"a quart of sour cream for the topping??? Certainly doesn't sound right to me!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 2, 2013

"For a 10-inch springform pan, this is going to be a very small cheesecake! I would suggest doubling the filling in order to have a decently sized cake. I also think chocolate syrup would be too runny; a fudge sauce that is slightly warmed up has a thicker consistency and won't run down the sides of the cake."
