Just delightful! Very creamy and lovely flavor. Like another reviewer, I also added a bit more sugar and more spices (but I like things pretty spicy). Thanks for sharing!

Okay... I don't usually give 5 stars for a recipe that I needed to change, but this was soooooo good. The changes that I made were I added 1/2 cup of white sugar because it wasn't sweet enough and I doubled the sour cream topping. This was very good. Made for ZWT 4.

We enjoyed this cheesecake! I found caramel striped shortbread cookies and used them for the crust. Couldnt find my springform pan so half the filling went into the pie pan and the other half I baked in a casserole dish. Loved the sour cream topping and the toffee melts a bit underneath with just a bit of crunch. A very rich and sinful cheesecake! The caramel topping adds another level of flavor and sweetness.
