Amazing recipe, everyone loves it!
Best cheesecake I've ever made. It's better than a lot of restaurant cheesecake that I've tasted.
I have been making this exact recipe for years. It IS my family's favorite cheesecake. Whether I serve it plain, or make homemade blueberry or strawberry sauce, everyone loves it! Make sure eggs and cream cheese are at room temp. Add egg yolks in on low, mixing ONLY until combined. Beating eggs with the cream cheese will cause cheesecake to crack. Of course the sour cream topping will hide any cracks.
I have featured this recipe at Christmas dinner for many years! It is an absolute favorite anywhere I take it. It is lighter and a bit fluffier than most cheesecakes, which we like. I make it as the recipe says. I most often make a strawberry glaze that can be drizzled over each piece with some fresh cut berries and then garnish with a tiny attractive squirt of whipped cream. This will remain a "keeper" in my book. My mom also served it at her Christmas dinners before she was gone. So good!!!
This cheesecake would be perfect if it called for a 1/2 a cup of sugar. First time I made it. I put the one and a half cups of sugar in. Way over the top to sweet. Next time I used a 1/2 cup. It is lighter and fluffier than your average cheesecake. It’s a very good cheesecake. But, someone needs to edit the ingredients.
Soooooooo good! First cheesecake I've ever made. It was a huge success.
I've been making this cheesecake for years and it's been beloved by all who've tried it!However, one part of the recipe needs to be adjusted. Over time, the size of store-bought graham crackers have shrunk (by about 13% according to my math), so you'll need approximately 45.5 squares (or 22.75 full, rectangular crackers) to make the required 2.5 cups of graham cracker crumbs. This measurement is accurate for the regular 14.4-ounce packages of graham crackers.After the crumbs are made, you'll be left with 4.25 crackers to snack on while you (and any tiny humans) bake.
This was my first time making a cheesecake & I made this for my husbands' birthday!! He loved it!! I will make this again..thank for a wonderful recipe
this is by far the best cheese cake recipe.
This is by far the best tasting basic cheesecake recipe I've ever tasted. To me it's the texture that really sets it apart-- lighter, not so dense. So simple to make that you think it will be bland but the flavor is perfect! I would imagine that it would be very easy to customize with different add-ins as well. Even my no cheesecake people loved it! :)
