Cheesecake may look intimidating to make, but it’s actually pretty easy. Like any baking, you just need to pay attention to the measurements of the ingredients and watch the cooking times.
This is about 15-20 minutes of active time, a few hours total time for the baking and the setting. Make it the day/night before you need it for less stress. You will need a springform pan (roughly 15 bucks at any cookware store) that is about 8 or 9 inches. We used a much wider pan (the only one we had) which tastes just as good but turns out a little thinner than a typical cheesecake.

1) The Base:
2) The Filling:
Mix a small container of sour cream with 2 tablespoons of white sugar and spread carefully over the cheesecake and bake again for about 5 more minutes.
Allow to cool on the counter for at least an hour before refrigerating and decorate with what ever fruit you can find. We used kiwi and blackberries.
