I have never made cheesecake but I got an 8-inch spring form pan for Xmas (I've never made one, because I never had the correct pan).
Well....I haven't found many recipes for an 8-inch pan, would a 9-inch recipe work in it? I guess I would have a little left over batter...?
I found this recipe that sounds good: Rose Levy Beranbaum's
My only concern is that is has A LOT of sour cream in it (which I notice a lot do). If a recipe has more sour cream in it will it not as dense??? I would like to make a plain, rich, dense, YUMMY first cheesecake =)
