Sour Cream Cheesecake Recipe



There was a time in the not to distant past where this sour cream cheesecake recipe was my go to recipe for a holiday dessert, to bring to any function, to serve to friends and family (when I knew when they were coming over), etc. I knew the recipe by heart I had made it so many times!

It is an excellent cheesecake, always well received. When it is cold, that first bite is nice and creamy with just the slightest hint of a tang. Mmm marvelous!

Notes:

• Place a drip pan on the oven shelf beneath the springform pan – it will help catch any drips.

• Chop the walnuts finely, or use this trick to make chopped nuts easily!

Danish Puff Recipe

cut Danish pastry puff on brown plate surrounded by coffee cups and silverware on a marble background


This delicious Danish Puff Pastry Recipe is quite old; my Grandmother made it for as long as I can remember, and I have been making it for over 35 years myself. This simple to make puff pastry recipe is a fantastic coffee Danish to serve friends and family for dinner, breakfast, or get-togethers.

Danish Puff Recipe

Notes:

• Toppings: either leave the Danish Puff Pastry with just the frosting, or use chopped or sliced almonds, chopped walnuts, or drain a few maraschino cherries, and dice them up fine. You can also mix and match the toppings (nuts + maraschino cherries works very well!)

• This does not keep well. It is best fresh to the next day (cover well if storing overnight). My best advice? Once cut, be prepared to eat the Danish Puff Pastry. And no, I have never made a half-recipe and neither has anyone else in my family – and believe me, this is a family favorite.

I thought you might be interested in what my recipe card for this one looks like!

I’ve made this a lot over the last 35 years. I think it may be time for me to rewrite that recipe card!
