I searched through the DB and didn't find another like this so I thought I would add it. I got the recipe somewhere online and now I don't remember where. I have made it quite a few times and every time it turns out so delicious! However for those that know more about making cheesecake I seem to always get the stupid crack in the center so if you know any tricks to keeping that from happening please post them. It is a very moist cheesecake so moisture doesn't seem to be the issue. There is a bit of work involved to making this but it is simpler than it looks and oh so worth the effort!
