THIS SIMPLE & EASY SOUR CREAM TOPPING CAN BE USED WITH ANY CHEESECAKE.

It really does add the right amount of tartness to the cheesecake.

Can leave it plain, or sometimes add a few COLORED sugar crystals ON TOP TO MAKE IT MORE FESTIVE .

I did this when I made my Lady Rose's Faux Pink Champagne Kissed Cheesecake. You can use a variety of colors of sugars depending on the holiday or occassion.

The topping adds a bit of tartness to the cheesecake, it is very simple & easy. I use 1 1/2 cups of sour cream, because when you add it on top of the hot cake, some of it tends to disappear.

Ingredients

1 1/2 c
sour cream, room temperature
3 Tbsp
granulated sugar
2 tsp
almond extract ( or extract of your choice)
1 tsp
lemon juice

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a small bowl, add the room temerature sour cream, sugar, extract and lemon juice. Stir to blend flavors together. Then spread on top of cheesecake.
2
Leave cheesecake in oven after it has cooked with the oven turned off for 15 minutes, and door is slightly opened. Then add sour cream topping on top of cheesecake, and leave in oven for 45 minutes. Remove from oven to a wire rack and allow cake to cool completely.
3
Let cake cool completely at least 4 or 5 hours in fridge or over night, then add additional garnish like colored sugar crystals or your favorite fruit & or candies.
4
Slice serve and enjoy.

I like your suggestion about the sour mix. I will add this to the top of my next cheesecake, I may make one for fellowship at church. They are a good at critiquing anything.
