    SilentCricket's Note:

    I called this recipe "Easter Sunday Cheesecake" because that is when I first served it when a bunch of friends got together for Easter dinner after church. A delicious cheesecake recipe that is a bit different in that it's made in a 9x13 pan as opposed to the usual springform pan. For a little extra, I add a dash of cinnamon to the crust mixture....YUM! (Cook time includes time for cheesecake to cool overnight)

      This is one of those recipes that I really wish I could give more than 5 stars. This cheesecake is simply wonderful. I served it at a family Christmas, and it was a total hit. It is rich, creamy, and tastes absolutely wonderful. Fairly easy to make as well. I chose to just use two cans of cherry pie filling for my topping. This is definately a dessert that I will keep in mind for parties at work, family gatherings, and a summer bbq! In a word: Excellant!

      Awesome cheesecake! Fresh strawberries had just come into season when I made this one so I placed fresh sliced berries on top of the cheesecake before putting the thickened strawberry topping on top of it. Absolutely wonderful and it disappeared quickly at the potluck we had at work. Many co-workers asked for the recipe! Thanks!

      Made this for, what else, Easter Sunday. The whole family loved it. Each layer had its own distinct flavor that worked well with the others. I especially loved the strawberry glaze; it was nearly perfect, not too sugary and not too tart. I didn't bake the crust quite long enough but it turned out just fine. And I also didn't let the cheesecake set for the final 6-8 hours, but it still got rave reviews. After the final 5 minutes in the oven, I stuck the cheesecake in the freezer and left it while we ate dinner. About 45 minutes later, took it out and it was great! I'm sure it will be even better tomorrow after more chilling. Thank you!
