I also wonder as Kayla asked in her comment if yogurt could be substituted successfully? I have been wanting to make a REAL New York Cheesecake from scratch for quite a while now, I guess it always intimidated me, now that I FINALLY purchased a springform pan, and found this easy recipe, I will certainly make it. My granddaughter, and I simply love cheesecake! I will be making it for her birthday as she prefers that instead of cake :)

Chef John: Can you substitute plain yogurt, for sour cream, successfully? I don't want to try it, and waste all that cream cheese, just to have it fail. ha ha.
