Easy Sour Cream Cheesecake Recipe
This is a very creamy cheesecake. It's delicious plain, or you may top with fruit pie filling.
It doesn't get easier than this no-bake cheesecake made with sour cream; simple ingredients are whipped up and poured into a graham cracker crust.
Pretty good cheesecake recipe. My usual recipe uses more cream cheese so I used this one. I used a graham crust in a springform pan. I always bake my cheesecakes for like 15 minutes at 450 then reduce the oven temp to 250-275 and bake for like another 45min. Then I turn the oven off and let it cool in there for an hour or so. Then place in frige overnight. This way there is no crack and it will be perfectly creamy, no water bath needed!! If I make this again I'd probably add a tablespoon of lemon juice.
I only had only a few hours before a dinner at our house to come up with something yummy for dessert, & this was the PERFECT recipe!! Picked up the 2 packages of cream cheese, & a pre-ready made graham crust at the store. Put the cream cheese out on the counter for a few minutes, then creamed all the ingrediants together. Poured over the crust, put the pre-ready crust tin in the oven, & it was done in 55 minutes! No using a sppring pan, and the curst tasted just as good as the homemade ones I have done before. Beautiful and SO yummy! Sprinkled red rasberries and drizzled chocolate sauce over it. Guests raved about it, and none was left! This is a definite SAVE recipe that is SO super easy!!!!!
I made this for my family. I put graham cracker crust instead. It was super easy. Just a hint for warming up the cream cheese to make it soft to work with .Take the cream cheese out of the boxes leave the foil on and put in hot water for about 10 minutes. Make sure the foil is sealed. It warms it up then you don't have to wait to get to room temperature it is done in a matter of minutes. I do the same with eggs as well. I leave the eggs in the shell in warm water for about 10 minutes and it does the job. I will keep this recipe for sure.
Outstanding flavor! I added about a tablespoon of lemon juice to add some extra umph, but probably the best cheesecake recipe I've made!
This cheesecake is creamier than most cheesecakes, and very easy to make. Use grated lemon zest or 1 teaspoon lemon extract for flavoring.
Sour cream cheesecake baked over a vanilla wafer crust is a delightful dessert for special occasions and holidays.
