Tasted much better the 2-3 day.
Absolutely delicious. I used light brown sugar and it was great. It looked like I bought it at a bakery.
Made this for husband's birthday. Cheesecake is my least favorite food ever, so comments are from husband and kids. I had to leave this in the oven much longer than the recipe called for, and the top got pretty brown and cracked. Even then, the middle was still a bit underdone. Next time I will reduce oven temp and bake slower for a longer time. All said the taste was very good and this was better a day after I baked it and when it was very chilled. Will make again with changes. Thanks.
I made this last week and at first I was kind of disappointed because it is expensive to make and a bit time consuming...however, when I tried a piect about a day later I was very pleased. This definitely gets better with time and went quickly once we realized how delicious it was. I will make this again but wait about 2 days before serving it. Thanks Lisa Pizza for a new treat!
I've been making this since it first appeared in Bon Appetit magazine in 2000. It's truly excellent. Thanks for taking the time to post it here.
This is a very good cheesecake if you want something other than the traditional cheesecake. I followed the directions exactly and it came out perfect - no cracks at all. All of the ladies at "Pokeno" enjoyed it also. Thanks for a great recipe Lisa.
