excellent! I did cut the sour cream in half and cooked it for about an hour, then just shut the oven off and walked away from it until 5 hours later. No cracks and very firm.-15 Nov 2006

Next time I will omit the almond extract, it was a little overpowering for my family's taste. I followed advice and used only 1.5 cups of sour cream for a thicker cheesecake, which worked beautifully.-15 Aug 2005

Wow! Great cheesecake and so simple. I did cut the sour cream in half as I prefer a firm cake. Decorated with whipped cream and a chocolate drizzle-no one believed I made it!! Thanks for a GREAT recipe.-02 May 2004
