Hollywood Cheesecake

Hollywood Cheesecake

Serving Size: serves 6-8.

This cheesecake was one of my mom's specialties. I remember back then (does that make me sound old?), it was a special treat for her to go to the specialty food store and buy chocolate or strawberry flavored cream cheese. The sour cream topping is one of my favorites... and it kept the flavor of the cheesecake a surprise until we cut into it. Thinking about this enough, just might have to whip one up for dessert some time soon...
