This is an AMAZING recipe. It's seasonal, delicious and EASY! Everyone had seconds (which made us happy, but horribly full!) I only had a 10" springform available, but even with no changes AT ALL in the recipe, it came out perfectly. A real winner!
Yummy! Very easy to make and no cracks in the cheesecake. I used cinnamon graham crackers instead of the cookies. I''m going to make this for Thanksgiving.
I made this last Thanksgiving and everyone was impressed. It's a solid recipe. I substituted cinnamon graham crackers, and they worked fine. I'm sure the Pepperidge Farm cookies would be great. Very festive!
