2 c. sour cream
1/3 c. sugar
1 t. vanilla extract

In a small bowl, combine the sour cream, sugar and vanilla; spread over filling or cake, then bake as usual. Bake 5 minutes longer. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Carefully run a knife around edge of pan to loosen; cool 1 hour longer. Chill overnight.
