This is the very richest, smoothest cheesecake. The finely ground almonds which dust the pan are a pleasing contrast to the silkiness of the cake. Use a straight-sided pan 8 inches wide and 3 inches deep. This recipe is adapted from
The Cheesecake Factory Original Cheesecake copycat recipe. Tweaked recipe just a little: added sour cream lemon juice, cooked on 475 for 15 mins, then 350 for 15 mins, finally 310 for 45 mins. Topped with homemade strawberry reduction!
