|Cheesecake recipes are simple. They become complex only because people struggle to equate simplicity with greatness. Belladonna deviated from the recipe by adding a bit more vanilla than the recipe called for.|
|Our oven wanted a bit longer and a bit warmer to get the cheese cakes to "set"|
A final note of caution: Don't cut the cheesecake until after it is chilled. The cream cheese and sour cream have a very high fat content. Cutting while warm will cause the slices to collapse in a heap of crumbs and the knife will drag when cutting.
