Cook's Notes

When you're pressing the crumbs into the pan for the crust, use a flat-bottomed measuring cup. It makes it easy to get an even thickness -- and to get into the pan's corners.

    I made the recipe as written, but I found it really needed more sugar (and I don't like overly sweet things). Even after all set, I found it really too sour and not a great flavor. I think it must have been the Greek yogurt. I used Fage 4%. Sour cream might be better choice. Also, the cream cheese left lumps in the better, which I found really annoying. I put it through a strainer, and there were still lumps. That was probably something I did wrong, but it would be helpful to provide advice on how to avoid this.

      Maybe you didn’t let the Cream cheese warm up for at least two hours.

    I've made this receipt time after time and it's always a favorite. It's also so simple.

    Delicious and easy to make. Searching for full-fat Greek yogurt was the only challenge. I used a Pyrex storage dish instead of a springform pan. Getting the pieces out of the dish intact required a little bit of effort. I also used gluten-free graham cracker crumbs to make this dessert gluten-free.

    Super easy and delicious! Not overly sweet and heavy like some cheesecakes, either. The crust holds up well and the cake cuts into slices nicely. I will make this again.
