Ok, now that we’ve got that out of the way… I’m kidding, kind of. I love the Taste of Home cookbooks. I love the magazines, too, but there is something special to me about holding a cookbook in your hands and flipping through the pages. But without fail, the Taste of Home cookbooks are always jam packed with recipes that I want to try. So when I saw the new Taste of Home Christmas cookbook, I knew it had to join my collection.
I’m always on the lookout for the newest, best cheesecake recipe, so the cover of this cookbook was intriguing to me to start off with. But when I read the ingredients and instructions for this Festive New York-Style Cheesecake, I was even more excited to try it. This cheesecake has what you’d expect with a cookie crust and a cheesecake layer, but then it is followed by a sour cream layer. I made a cheesecake years ago that had a sour cream layer, and I had been wanting to try it again, so it’s like this cheesecake was meant to be. Read my notes below to see what I thought of this recipe.
