This is outstanding. I made a small sized cake as I'm the only one in the family that likes cheesecake (YAY!). The sides browned enough to look like chocolate but when it was cut the center was a perfect creamy vanilla. I topped mine with a strawberry rhubarb sauce using rhubarb cut outside my back door and straight onto the chopping block. I also added a touch of Goldschlager to it and, oh my, what a fabulous combo! Made for ZWT7 and Witchin Kitchen.
Very good! This tastes very much like the Baked Cheesecake that I ate at one of my neighbors' homes in Winnweiler, Germany when we lived there from 1975-1978. It was the first time I had ever eaten baked cheesecake that day. This is good even without the fresh strawberries I plan to put on it later. BTW...I only made a 1/2 recipe and used a glass pie plate and it didn't crack at all. So perhaps this recipe just prefers glass baking containers. I very lightly sprayed the pan before putting in the crust and it lifts out just fine...so I see no need to use a springform pan unless you just like the presentation of the cheesecake standing up so elegantly. I will make this recipe again. Made for Zingo--ZWT#6--2010.
Quite a nice cheesecake. I have to be honest and say that after trying both I do prefer a graham crust, The cheesecake itself is fabulous. Mine cracked a little on top but I loved the nice even top that firmed up without the jiggly center guessing game that I play with my normal recipe. I did leave it in the oven the full 60 minutes at 250 but should have maybe checked it at 55 minutes. I used reduced fat cream cheese and stirred in mini chocolate chips vs using a fruit topping. Overall we were very pleased and I will be saving this recipe to make again. Thanks for sharing the recipe with us :) Made for ZINGO! ZWT 6
This was a very tasty cheesecake, with quite a different crust. The overall cheesecake was not very sweet, which I appreciated, and the crust was quite sturdy, and also not so sweet. I wish that I had added a topping, because my cheesecake did crack. While not affecting the taste, it would have been more attractive! I will be making this again. Made for ZWT6.
Made your recipe as given & was gonna finish it off with a bright berry pie filling, but then opted for something a bit different! I used a gooseberry pie filling & thoroughly enjoyed that somewhat unconventional addition! [Made & reviewed during the ZINGO part of ZWT6]
This is a very tasty, easy cheesecake! I even made the crust. ( I am somewhat pastry-phobic. lol) I did add a bit of fresh lemon to the filling and topped with a strawberry/blueberry mixture on top. Thanks for posting, Rachel. Made for ZWT 6, Zingo.
Very good cheesecake! I loved how easy this was to make and how pretty it turned out. I used cherry pie filling for the topping. Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT 6.
Geez, now I don't have an excuse for making cheesecake! This was fabulous! And I love the fact that we can personalize to our tastes! Thnx for sharing your recipe, Rachel. Made for the Voracious Vagabonds of ZWT 6.
This was my first cheese cake. I am a great lover of cheese cake, it is my favorite desert. I stopped buying it because I was always let down. I am so glad I tried your cake. I will make it often and even though it fell it taste great. Next time I will not handle until cool. I am also going to try to add a flavoring to the crust. So simple and yet so goooood. Thanks for a great recipe
i thought real cheesecake was supposed to be hard! this was so easy to make! thank you for a wonderful, impressive recipe. I made it 2 times last weekend for 2 different events!
