    What an incredible recipe! I have made this cheesecake several times and it is always a huge hit. I did "tweak" a couple things such as using 3 1/2 to 4 cups of Jonagold apples. I chop one cup up, toss the pieces in a little cinnamon, then add to the cream cheese mixture. Also, I squeeze a couple tablespoons of fresh lemon juice into the cream cheese mixture while mixing. Fabulous!

    I don't know what I could have done wrong here, but it was NOT good. It was mushy, too wet, flavorless (even though I added lemon zest). Maybe the cottage cheese I used had too much liquid, but I doubled this recipe to make 2 cheesecakes, take one to work and ended up throwing them both out. What a waste of time and money. Very disappointing.

    OMG!!! This was totally delish!!!! I made it for Thanksgiving and my mom wants me to bring it back for Christmas. Was disappointed that it cracked, but I think I will let it cool a little longer this time before removing the springform. This is one for the books!!!

    I made this and got rave reviews, so I made two for Thanksgiving dinner at my brother's. IT IS AWESOME!! Very easy to do and looks great! I've never made cheesecake before and was happy about how easy this is. Just had to educate my son that one does not throw away the bottom of the springform pan! I will be making this again and again!
