    Countrywife's Note:

    It's quick to make and easy to remember and forgiving. More sour cream makes it creamier, less is stiffer. I've topped it with nothing, sour cream, pie filling, fresh fruit, even lemon Jello.

      This is a quick, satisfying, and tasty little cheesecake fix' and that is why it is so darn appealing. It tastes great as written. I always prefer using 1/4 cup sugar to reduce the calories and cut the sweetness......but then make up for those 'lost' calories by using 3/4 cup sour cream! Besides the vanilla, I also always add just a touch of grated lemon rind (just the yellow) because it makes a world of difference in the flavour. If there's a jar of maraschino cherries left with just a few floating around, I will drain well and rough chop a couple and add them at the very end. Sometimes I will use graham cracker crumbs and margarine and a pinch of sugar to quickly do up my own crust and press it into the pie plate with the flat bottom of a small juice glass. That makes a major difference in the flavour department too. What an easy but decadent treat to scarf up all by yourself.....ummm...errr....well, I mean with neighbours and friends of course....

      This was an easy and great cheesecake recipe that I made into some bars. I used an almond crust that I had made before hand for the crust and also substituted splenda for sugar to make it sugar-free. This is a delicious and different way of making cheesecake, thanks!

      I have allergies to dairy, so I used tofu cream cheese and tofu sour cream.. I also used 12 ounces of cream cheese and 1 cup of sour cream to make my pie a bit fuller.. It cooked up perfect.. Thank you for this recipe.. First time I have had cheesecake in 20 years! yum!
