I have a question about the recipe "Meyer Lemon Cheesecake with Biscoff Crust" from Lucy Mercer. Hello, I would like to know the amounts for cream cheese and sour cream (in grams also). I don't understand what you meant here with the 2 sets of parenthesis. Thank you :)

That is a little confusing. It's saying three 8 ounce packages of cream cheese. That would be 227 grams each package according to one that I happen to have. 16 ounces of sour cream would be 454 grams. In both cases, Lucy says low fat will work, but nonfat will not. Personally, I would go with full fat, but that is up to you.

Food52 does some goofy page layout things with recipes that make some a bit inscrutable.

3 packages of cream cheese (8 oz.)
1 carton of sour cream (16 oz.)

It's 3 8-oz. packages. It has to do with how you enter the data in the "amounts" field when adding a recipe--it skips to the line below when the information in that field runs over.
