Homemade Cheesecake Recipe With Sour Cream. To make cheesecake you will need 2 pounds cream cheese 1 cup sugar 1 tablespoon cornstarch or 2 tablespoons all purpose flour optional 1 8 teaspoon salt 1 2 cup sour cream 2 teaspoons lemon juice optional 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 3 large eggs 1 large egg yolk 12 whole graham cracker rectangles 6 ounces 5 tablespoons butter. I used a graham crust in a springform pan.
Grind cookies fine in a blender. Start by adding the cream cheese and sugar to a bowl and mixing it for a few minutes on medium low speed until it s nice and smooth. I recently tested a cheesecake recipe with 1 cup of heavy cream instead but ended up sticking with my original which can be found here with blueberry swirls.
Bake for 10 minutes at 450f then reduce heat to 250f and for 25 30 minutes more or until set.
My usual recipe uses more cream cheese so i used this one. This recipe says no sour cream cook 350 for 1 hr let sit in oven for 30 mins longer and let cool completely before covering with plastic wrap and refrigerate. Blend in vanilla then pour into crust. For topping combine the sour cream and remaining sugar and vanilla in a small bowl.
