Win someone's heart with a cheesecake

On February 14 it is a tradition to send cards to friends and family, but many people like to make something special for a Valentine's Day dinner also. Or it may be enough to make a special dessert, one that you don't make frequently and may require some time and care to put together.

Here is a recipe for cheesecake that would be nice served with frozen strawberries or raspberries at this time of year, and it will look like a festive dessert. It might just be that a cheesecake is the way to someone's heart.

Beat cheese until smooth and fluffy, then add 1 cup of sugar gradually, mixing well. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition. Stir in lemon juice and 1 teaspoon vanilla and pour mixture over crumbs in pan. Bake at 375 degrees F. about 40 minutes, until done. Make a topping by mixing sour cream with 2 tablespoons suger and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, and spread over top of cake. Bake at 475 degrees F. Remove cake to cool, and put in refrigerator overnight.
