    OMG I have died and gone to heaven.. this is so good. A friend makes these and brings them as hostess gifts.. I finally talked her out of the recipe. Yes, I asked her if I could share it here. This is a keeper in our family. Time does not include the overnight chilling

      Made this for Thanksgiving this year and it was quite a hit! The cheesecake is beautiful, especially with the swirled caramel on top. I will make this again definitely, but I think that next time I will double the reserved cream cheese/sugar mixture, or maybe add some whipped cream to it, as the cake is dense and needs a little more "fluff" on top. P.S. I also had LOTS of extra caramel sauce on hand to drizzle on top of each slice - the little bit on top is definitely not enough!

      I made this for Thanksgiving and I do have to say that if your neighbor wants me on her gift list PLEASE give her my name! This was the best cheesecake!! I did not use the sour cream topping and for 2 Tablespoons of the whipped cream in the cream cheese topping I substituted a caramel liquor. YUM YUM! I also found this cheesecake fairly easy to make. Thank you very much!
