Maple Pumpkin Cheesecake

For our first Thanksgiving with my husband's family, I wanted to bring a special dish and decided I couldn't go wrong with a dessert that combines cheesecake and pumpkin pie. It was a huge success!—Jodi Gobrecht, Bucyrus, Ohio

    This cheesecake is very tasty! I brought it to Thanksgiving at my duaghter's. But we all wondered why it is topped with sour cream? First, it didn't all fit on top of the cheesecake so I only added a small amount and brought the rest to pour over. But no one liked it on top. Is it perhaps a typo and should be different ingredient? I will keep the recipe, but not the topping.
