The combination of sour cream, cream cheese, sugar, and fresh lemon juice is the ideal blend of sour, creamy, and slightly sweet.

I only use one cup of sugar which is more than enough. But feel free to taste the cheese filling and adjust the sweetness to your liking.

I love to dust the finished cake with powdered sugar. To make it look pretty, I used freeze-dried strawberries for a pop of color.

You will need to be a bit patient in the process of making this cheesecake. It might be better to say after it comes out of the oven.

I recommend waiting until the cake has completely cooled down before slicing it. I know, I know … it is hard but worth it.

Now, it’s time for a cup of joe. Let’s dive into the recipe.
