I just made this recipe for the judges and band directors at a competition we were hosting at my son's high school. It was widely enjoyed, and I even heard one person say that it was the best cheesecake they had ever eaten, and another that they especially liked the cheesecake, when talking about the entire meal. That was exciting to me, as I hadn't made a cheesecake in years, and had no special recipe to fall back on. I just searched on allrecipes.com, and found this one. It is creamy, and has just the right amount of sweetness and sourness. I did use light sour cream, but made it with the regular Philadelphia cream cheese. In my part of the country, you can get a bulk amount at Costco, and it is more affordable. I definitely didn't want to spend $2 apiece on the individual bars. I also doubled the crust ingredients for more thickness.I had a set-up where the diners could pick their own topping, which made it really fun. We made it elegant by walking around the tables with pieces with varied toppings that they could select from, or taking their order, then bringing it back on trays. Coffee finished it off. I also made another recipe on this site, which was equally popular, called "Decadent Peanut Butter Pie". It takes a bit of trouble, but is gorgeous and unbelievably delicious, and would make an impressive dessert to serve on special occasions at home, too. You can find it on here by using the search bar. I recommend cutting it into fairly small pieces, as it is very rich.
