I have made this cheesecake, which I got from a Food Network Show as well, and let me tell you it is FABULOUS!! One smal difference is the reicpe I followed had Amaretto in it as well. It is a VERY impressive cheesecake, in fact, the two times I made it and brought it to parites, NOBODY believed that I had made it....they all thought It was professionaly made and bought! LOL
This is a fantastic recipe! I created an account just to review it. It's easy to make, absolutely delicious, and it comes out beautifully every time. It's a definite crowd-pleaser, I've never had any comments but rave reviews. It's easy to put together and it looks quite nice when plated. Make sure to mix it thoroughly without over-beating it, and don't forget the parchment paper, the bottom of the crust burned the one time I did (everyone still ate it and loved it!). This cheesecake has become one of my go-to recipes when I want to bake to impress. Its easy to make, comes out beautifully and looks gorgeous when cut into slices. One of my favorite recipes now!
