This is yummy & a nice change from the usual chocolate, cherry, etc. cheesecakes.The crust is a nice change also from the graham & chocolate ones. A tip that was listed is that you can make this ahead of time, pop it in the freezer,ready to serve for up to 3 months! Store right in the springform pan covered in plastic wrap and just thaw in the refrigerator when ready to use.
