      Wonderful recipe. Relatively easy to make, this delectable cheesecake is creamy and rich all the way through. I would suggest doubling the sauce portion of the recipe.

      Fantastic! Everyone loved it and all wanted the recipe. It is so light for a cheesecake. I whipped the 2 1/2 cups of whipping cream and folded it in, making it plentiful and light in texture.
