Loved this recipe-took it to my parent's for my Dad's birthday-everyone loved it! To the crust I added more butter and also 1/4C of sugar. Thanks a bunch!
I was pretty disappointed with this cake as it was very bland. I was very surprised considering all the rave reviews. This is my first negative review. I even added 1/4 c of sugar but it didn't help.
Delicious cheesecake. Not too hard to make either! Though I did find that I needed more than 1 1/2 tablespoons of butter for the crust. I baked mine with a panful of water in the oven and it didn't get cracks in the top. Also, I let it sit in the oven to cool for 1 hr then refrigerated it overnight. It came out great.
Making cheesecakes are something I do well and enjoy making them... I came across this recipe and I had a lot of compliments. This will be something I will make again and tell others...

I made this for my son's birthday & it was fabulous! I did not use a water bath but instead put a pan of hot water on the lower rack....no cracks! I micrwaved strawberry jam for a few seconds to make it saucier & drizzled the cheesecake w/ that. Will make again... maybe next time w/ some blueberries & whipped cream!
This recipe is the perfect combination of simplicity, richness, and creaminess! The cheesecake was smooth as silk and was utterly divine. The only change I made was to add some grated lemon and lime zest for a little flavor. It is a heavier cheesecake and should be served in small slices, or it is just too much. But that's the way we like it here! This is a good base for other flavored cheesecakes, and is thick enough to swirl in other ingredients. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
This cheesecake is very creamy and fairly easy to make. I would definitely give this recipe to my friends. It's a keeper!
I love this cheesecake recipe. I used one package 1/3 fewer calories and two regular to cut down on the calories (I know why bother) but it didn't effect the test at all. I served it with frozen strawberries no sugar added (splenda) GREAT RECIPE. I will make again!
