This cheesecake is deep(dish), the texture is creamy and heavy, the taste is rich; the honey is light enough to not overpower the cream cheese. I used pure vanilla extract and raw orange blossom honey. I loved this recipe, it will be the only one I follow for cheesecake now. My boyfriend who loves cheesecake did not mind the honey and actually liked it despite it not being quite like your store bought/restaurant cheesecake. My mom who gags over anything with honey tasted this and did like it much to my surprise- she has always been honest in her critiques/complements of my cooking. + this cheesecake is much healthier than the cheesecakes with unpronounceable lists of ingredients, and with a decent amount of protein.

Great! Super easy, few ingredients, and since I don't eat sugar, i love the honey substitution. The texture and taste are perfect. Thanks!

Awsome, My mother has cancer and I have been using honey when she really gets a sweet tooth. This was a great alternative. Thanks
