I followed the hints on this site to make a good cheesecake and this recipie still turned out very shallow. Looked more like a tart than a cheesecake, although the texture and taste were very good.

A classic (and delicious!) amaretto cheesecake.

Sorry !!! This was not good to us. I think it was the sour cream topping. We love sour cream but not on cheesecake.
