This is my all time favorite recipe and because of some issues at home I had lost the recipe. Thank you so much for sharing!!
This is the best cheesecake recipe in my opinion. It used to be on the cream cheese box and I made it all the time - the best
This recipe was a bust in our house. No one liked it.
This is almost exactly like the recipe that I used to make from my Mom's "Joy of Cooking" cookbook, except that, as I recall, it didn't require any lemon at all. There are any number of cheesecake recipes, exotic, savory, etc. out there, but to me, nothing beats the "original" with sour cream topping. I sometimes put Cherry Pie filling on top, for Cherry Cheesecake. My children loved it that way. But, I'm a purist when it comes to cheesecake. And, frankly, forget that fluffy New York cheesecake. This dense and yummy one is the real deal in my book.
I add a layer of crushed pineapple over the crust and it is great. my father-in-law keeps asking me to make it again. he won't share it either.
This is the best cheesecake recipe I have ever made. My family and I keep trying new recipes but we always come back to this one. It looks great with no cracks on the surface and the taste is rich and moist. If we want fruit, it is simple to put some on the top.
This is the perfect cheesecake recipe. I made it exactly as is, with the lemon and it makes the cake. I imagine if you leave it out, it would be very lacking in flavour. Mine was all gone in a couple of hours because everyone kept going back for more. Enjoy!
I use to make cheesecakes every month for my office lunches. This one was always the favorite.
Made this cheesecake for the first time (and I've made LOTS of cheesecakes over the years). This is my family's new favorite! Didn't use lemon zest and halved the lemon juice. Used crushed vanilla wafers for the crust instead of the graham cracker crumbs.
This recipe is excellent. I did not use the lemon zest or juice. We tried it for the first time last night. This cheesecake is so good - my husband woke up this morning, thinking about it. I keep wondering if I should be happy....or jealous, lol. Make this recipe, you won't be disappointed.
