Sneak Peek at Tall and Creamy Cheesecake -- Tuesdays with Dorie

(before baking)

Just a quick peek at my cheesecake for TWD...I made it on Monday afternoon and it's resting in the fridge waiting for New Year's Eve :) I used all sour cream (when it gives the option of sour cream or cream) and plan to have a little "top your own cheesecake" station set up at our New Year's party. It rose a lot in the oven but sank back down during cooling. I hope everyone is having a wonderful holiday season and that your cheesecakes turned out perfectly, I can't wait to visit everyone and see all the variations!
Oh, forgot to add I skipped the waterbath -- I've made cheesecakes with and without waterbaths in the past and prefer not to do the waterbath. I don't mind the cracks on top :)
