"This is my husband's favorite recipe for cheesecake. The flour adds a texture that makes it unique. You can use a pastry crust instead of graham, if you prefer."

I've tried a couple of different cheesecake receipies and keep coming back to this one. The flour gives the cheesecake a little extra creaminess. Love it!

Dont like this cake like texture. It really ruins that light cheesecake flavor.

It's my first time baking cheesecake, I used light cream cheese. It's so yummy!

I made my own crust which added to the prep time but it was still very easy and quick to make. Also I used fat free cream cheese but the result was still very creamy and tasty.

I used this recipe to cut the fat grams and fooled everyone!!! I would suggest this recipe to anyone looking for great taste and less calories.

I made two of these for Thanksgiving dinner, and they absolutely stole the show! I used my own crust, rather than using a pre-made one (mostly because I couldn't find a premade one at the supermarket) and that did add to the time, but after that, following the recipe to the letter, they came out beautifully! They came out so well, that my cousin, whose house I had Thangsgiving dinner at, STOLE one whole cheesecake for herself! They also told me to make more for Christmas... *sighs* well, here I go, slaving into the kitchen again :)

Loved it. I used the "2 extra servings" pre-made crust, and it came out just fine. Tastes great with "supreme strawberry topping". will definitely make again.

This was a good cheesecake. Maybe a little bit dry, not as creamy as I would prefer. Good taste though and good enough when you need a cheesecake fix! Also, this was very easy to make. Didn't need the springform pan and didn't need to mess with a water bath (which always gets me into trouble).
