FANTASTIC! I was leary of using 1/2 cup of margarine in the crust, and it was pretty oily when I was pressing it into the pan, but it came out great. I used a 9-1/2" springform pan, adding about 8 minutes to the cook time to get it set. I only ended up using 1/2 of the sour cream topping, so I know to halve that next time for my size pan. This cheese cake was one of the firsts that I have made that did not crack at all and did not brown on top...it was PERFECT (and cut beautifully)! I did put a pan of water on the bottom rack of the oven while this was baking, so I'm sure that helped. Creamy, rich and yummy...everything a good cheesecake should be. I served it with salted caramel drizzle and strawberries, mmmmm.... I will def be making this again and again~YUM, YUM, YUM!!!!!! Thanks for sharing. :)

Terrific! I wouldn't change a thing. I didn't even have an opportunity to take a picture because my family devoured it too soon. Thanks for sharing the recipe.
