I've made this cheesecake twice now. The first time I followed the recipe exactly. The texture was exactly what I was hoping for and it tasted great. Unfortunately the cake developed a gigantic crack while it was cooling. I think the baking temperature was too high and it got overbaked/dry. I really loved the flavor so I made it again with a couple alterations. This time around I used only 8oz of sour cream, and added another 8oz of cream cheese. I made a cinnamon graham cracker crust for it. I also baked it at 475 F for 10 minutes, then dropped the temperature to 200 F for an hour. I let it sit in the oven for about 3 hours after it was done baking, then set it on the counter to cool completely before putting it in the fridge. I blended up some fresh strawberries, and diced a few and mixed them together to top the cake. This time it didn't crack, the cake was very soft with a fluffy texture, and it tasted amazing! Quite possibly the best cheesecake I've ever had.
