I have been making this recipe for a while now and I must admit it's become my favorite. I think it's involved but oh so worth it. Sometimes I like to add a hint of almond extract in the sour cream topping. This is the one time I allow myself to splurge on such a decadent dessert. I would give this more than 5 stars if possible because it is THE BEST!
Excellent Go no further Do not leave this cheesecake in the oven once done!
I am a little nervous . I followed this recipe word by word. After pouring the sou cream mixture over the cake, I baked it for 5 minutes as it says in the recipe. My concern is that when I took it out of the oven it looks very runny. Is it suppose to do that and will it firm up in the refrigerator. Other than that it looks like a great recipe!!
I have to admit, I did not use the cream of tartar...but this cheesecake was sooooo delicious and did not last long at all....
Very smooth, no hard areas, perfect uncracked top, fantastic flavor. DO include the cream of tartar. I baked mine the full 50 minutes in a water bath, then put on the sour cream topping, left it in the oven 5 min., then cracked the door and let it cool. I admit I used vanilla wafers for the crust because I like 'em better. I don't like my cheesecake to be "cakey," I like it totally smooth and this recipe is the one I'll use for the rest of my life. Kitchen Queen, you rock!
I have made this cheesecake three times in the last month! I did however, change it up a bit...I substituted Almond Extract for the Vanilla...Love it!
Yes, it's easy. But it didn't have that great cheesecake flavor. It's not bad, just not perfect.
This cheesecake is fabulous! I've never rated anything on allrecipes until now. You've got to try this one!
