I received this cheesecake recipe from a friend after trying it at her party, it's a very simple cheesecake to make, and is delicious, so creamy and good! This cheesecake is better if made a day ahead and refigerated to serve the following day. Prep time includes chilling time.

I thought this was just ok. I think the part i didnt like was the topping. It was just overly rich. Next time i'll make it with less sugar for the filling and no topping.
