Does anyone know how to get a very rich, dense not too soft cheesecake? Do I omit and egg, milk or sour cream? I am looking for a texture that's very similar to the cream cheese itself. Thanks for your input!

Deleting key ingredients in any recipe is going to result in a less than satisfactory finished product. icon_sad.gif

Instead, choose a recipe that yields a cheesecake that's closer to your desired taste.

There are many styles/types of cheesecake:

There are recipes that don't have sour cream in them. I've never seen one without eggs, and milk though. Post your recipe, does it have flour in it? Look for one without flour, and one that has cornstarch for the thickener instead.
