Here’s one of my favorite Easy Cheesecake recipes using sour cream that I think is just the best!  I’d like to share it with you as it’s a perfect sweet ending dessert for Brunch!

New York Cheesecake

Our family usually goes out to a favorite restaurant with a view of the waterfront down at the Connecticut shore for Mother’s Day, but because of the current state of the economy, we’ll be having a frugal celebration at home this year with my adult kids and the grandkids. Even if you’ve a hectic agenda, you can collect family, friends and acquaintances for a festive Mother’s Day celebration. Entertaining can be comparatively carefree and low-cost if you plan an informal brunch.

I must admit I have a fondness for any type of cheesecake.  When I recently visited New York City to review the King Tut Exhibit at the Discovery Center, we just had to stop at Lindy’s Restaurant for their famous New York Cheesecake before leaving!

Over the years I’ve tried all types of cheesecake recipes – bake; no bake; chocolate; amaretto; mocha and; cheesecakes made with and without a crust.

This easy, simple recipe has been passed down to me by my sister-in-law (who makes it every Easter and Thanksgiving). Dress it up by garnishing with strawberry, blueberry or pineapple topping.  Because the texture is so creamy, it’s delicious even served plain!

Serve it up for the holidays – simple cheesecake for Christmas, New Years or any time of the year!
