      This takes time, but the results are totally spectacular! I wish someone would take a picture of this cheesecake, especially a slice. I have a picture from SLiving 1986 (I believe or 1987) that I keep in my collection and it looks simply marvelous. This recipe is no-fail. Mine looks just like the professional picture and I'm no professional baker. I am thrilled to find this recipe on Zaar. It saves me time from digging out my hardback SL books. (You would think I'd make a copy of it and attach to picture in my file, but never do.) Anyway, this dessert is a show-stopper, both in looks and taste. It actually has 4 distinct layers, if you count crust and ganache type glaze. Let the glaze run down the sides for a great look. (It's a thicker glaze.) I have made this at least 8 times over the years and it is always a winner. Am going to make it again this weekend for an event, so I am thrilled to find this recipe here. Note: This recipe appeared in SL twice- 1986 (or 1987) and again in 1990. That shows you how much a winner it is!! I leave out the nuts. Please don't let the prep time discourage you. I promise it will be worth the extra effort! I always make it the day/night before. Put the glaze on the next morning, back in the refrig. and then serve that night. Serves way more that 10, that's for sure. It is very rich. I always pre-cut it, too, especially if people are serving themselves. Well, at least pre-cut a few of the pieces. Can't wait to make it this weekend. What a winner!! Reminds me of the cheescakes featured in the Neiman Marcus Holiday magazines that cost like $75 and up. Of course, it is certainly not cheap to make, that's for sure. But worth the extra cost. Leave out the nuts to save $$. Thank you for this recipe!!

      Employees I once worked with used to pay me to bake this and bring it to work. Absolutely delicious. Sadly, I lost the 1990 Southern Living cookbook in which it was printed. I am so happy you posted this recipe, as I have been looking for it for years.
