This cheesecake was a big hit here, too, & it isn't even Christmas! I recently got my very FIRST, very own springform pan & used it for this cake! Followed the ingredients & directions with one exception ~ I used whole berry cranberry sauce instead of the jellied kind, but put it through the blender VERY BRIEFLY just to make the chunks a little bit smaller! The cake came out great & was highly received, both by my other half & I, AND by some neighbors I invited over! Many thanks for this great recipe!
