I've never heard of this! If you havent done it in the past I would stick with what you have done bc that is what your customers are looking for!

Yes, but it's not just straight sour cream; it has some sugar (and maybe vanilla?) added to it, and it's put on top during the last few minutes of baking, I think. I haven't made one in a very long time, but I have done it and it is good. If you've ever had the original Sara Lee frozen cheesecake, it also has this sour cream topping. It's also good for camoflaging small cracks in the cheesecake.

Thanks, I don't know if she added the surgar and vanilla. I was in a crunch and a friend of mine offered to make the cheesecake for an order I have. I use her recipe anyway. I asked for plain cheese cake done in a sheet pan, She called me in the afternoon and said she had put sour cream over the top. I asked her why in the world would she do that. She had said she always used to do it when she made them in a jelly roll pan not when she made the round ones though. She a very good friend, I can't figure out for the life of me why someone would do that when I said plain cheesecake. To me that would be like someone asking for a plain cake with no frosting and then me frosting it anyway. It can't be scrapped off so I pray to God that it taste good.

I've got a pumpkin cheese cake recipe that calls for a sour cream mixture, with a little sugar and vanilla, to be spread on top of the cheesecake after it cools. I've tried it, but we all prefer the pumpkin cheesecake without the topping. Could just be our preference, though????
