- ½ Cup Sour Cream*

- Preheat oven to 475° F.
- Fill a large sheet pan with approximately ½" of water and place in oven on baking rack while pre-heating. This is an essential step in preventing the Cheesecake from cracking.

- Pour Filling into prepared Crust.
- Open Oven and carefully place Cheesecake into the preheated water bath.
- Bake for 12 minutes at 475° F, then turn oven down to 350° F and Bake until top of Cheesecake turns golden. This takes approx. 50-60 minutes.
- Remove Cheesecake from Oven and onto a to a Wire Cooling Rack to cool.
- Once Cheesecake is cool, prepare the topping by mixing the Sour Cream and Sugar. Spread evenly over cake top
- Refrigerate at least 4 hours to let Cheesecake fully set before serving.
