This was amazing!! I only bake a couple times a year so I like to make it fabulous when I do. I choose the cheesecake for him and the white chocolate for me :) I'm not a big fan of crust or fruit so this was perfect, decadent, and delicious. This made a wonderful b-day cake and it would be SUPER for a dinner party. Thanks Connie!

I have been making this cheesecake for years and find it wonderful. I also like the fact that no crumb base if involved. This saves me time. It's a rich cheesecake and very tasty. I sometimes make it up to two days ahead of my dinner party and it tastes even better than an overnight stay in the fridge.
