We bought a large torte pan with a removeable bottom just for this recipe. It can be made in a springform cheese cake pan, but it looks much nicer in the classic torte shape. This a very rich desert from all of the eggs in it. This is a diet breaker!

I'm giving this 5 stars for the "middle" . The rich filling is so decadent! We served raspberries over the top. I personally didn't care for the graham cracker crust with this but everyone else did. I will be making this again probably with an Oreo crust.
