    caffeine junkie's Note:

    Serendipity is little restaurant in New York City, as featured in the movie Serendipity (with Kate Beckinsale and John Cusack). They are famous for their Frozen Hot Chocolate (Serendipity's Frozen Hot Chocolate With Real Whipped Cream), but this cheesecake is a part of their many other desserts. I haven't tried it yet, but if it's from Serendipity, it just has to be good!

      this was fantastic! i used a grahm cracker crust (w/peanut butter for some pb lovers) but the cheesecake was sooooo delicious and smooth and tasty the only thing i changed in the recipe was i used lowfat cream cheese and sour cream but noone could tell the diference. it was a very creamy cake. although mine took over 2 hours to cook.. but still worth it. i think i will make this my staple cheesecake recipe from now on. thank you for posting!!
