OMG! These were fabulous! I had my eye on this recipe for a while and finally got around to trying it and I'm glad I did. Very easy to make with great results that make it look like you spent hours... I lined my glass baking dish with Reynolds Wrap heavy duty non-stick foil which made getting the cheesecake out a breeze. I did add a Tbsp. of vanilla extract to the cream cheese mixture but other than that I didn't change a thing. My only criticism is that the baking time is off - I left it in for an hour and 15 minutes, then turned off the oven and let it remain in there for another 15-20 minutes. Once it cooled I left it in the fridge overnight. Be sure to clean your knife in between each cut. The sea salt caramel really compliments this nicely. Next time I think I'll just make this using a 9 inch round spring form pan. Overall, a definite keeper and one I'll make again!

Wow, these were absolutely delicious. The whole family agreed the recipe is a keeper and I already have a request to make them again. I tried to make them a wee bit healthier by cutting back butter in the crust (only by 1 Tbsp) and exchanging half of the cream cheese for the low fat version. Still delicious. I only had an 8x8 pan and they seemed to bake forever, but it was worth it.

My curiosity was definitely peaked!. I make cheesecake fairly often and thought this would be a great change. I followed the recipe exactly as written and was very pleased. I always take my All-Recipes First-Attempts at New Recipes to work to get the opinions of my co-workers. The whole tray disappeared in an astonishing short time. I was actually embarrassed to see them as they devoured it all. I used Chef John's Salted Caramel - my personal favorite caramel sauce

Used canned homemade apple pie filling, added vanilla extract and skipped the salt on top. Sprinkled with pecans as I drizzled the caramel on top. It did seem to take a long to bake, I wished I had put it on a lower rack so the top did not brown so much. Delicious!

made it in a premade graham cracker crust pie plate, it turned out pretty darn good!

Not a fan of apples so going to use it as a base for other fruit. Strawberries sound like a good switch up with chocolate sauce.
