fantastic. I made this for a potluck at work- and I ended up making 4 more pies over the following 3 days just to get people to quit interrupting me about it... I didn't feel like bothering with the crust bit after the first round, the graham cracker premade crusts are just as good.
Made this for my Christmas Dinner. I love to make cheesecakes, and this one was no different. Great taste, wonderful texure. Just spectacular.
I love cooking cheesecakes anyway,so I tried this for Thanksgiving and it was a huge hit! I have had requests to make for Christmas as well! 5Stars:) Sarah M
This dessert is a new favorite with my family! Out of 3 desserts served on Thanksgiving, the other two only had one slice eaten, while this cheesecake had only 2 slices left. My cousins ate the leftovers for breakfast the next morning. There did seem to be alot of filling and I cut the sugar used in the topping to 1/4 cup; all in all this recipe was great!!!
I agree with Mark that this was a smooth, creamy, almost light cheesecake. It was just not flavorful enough for me. I did get good reviews from my European friends who ate it. They felt most American desserts were too sweet, but this was just right. But three days after the party all the other desserts are gone and half of this remains, which tells you something.
This was a fabulous finish for my Thanksgiving menu. The only change I made was using ginger snap crumbs for the crust -- they served as a perfect counterpoint for the creamy, smooth cream cheese mixture. While it's a little time consuming to make, this cheesecake will likely become a new fall tradition in my home!
