I developed this recipe as a varation of one that was given to me. It has been a hit each and every time I have made it. I always get rave reviews. One problem though...sometimes, it is not as firm as I would like, and I am all about pretty food and presentation. It tastes wonderful...BUT, I want it to look perfect, too. Should I add a block of cream cheese? Take out an egg? Does anyone have any suggestions? Here are the basic ingredients for the filling part and a pic.
*Note-I don't add the toppings until just before serving, so I don't think they are the culprit.
Sugared Strawberry Cheesecake
32 oz (4 blocks) softened cream cheese
1 1/4 c sugar
1/2 c sour cream
5 eggs (whisked separately and added after creaming everything else)
1-2 tsp vanilla extract
