I made this for our ladies Bunco night, and everyone loved it! I dressed it up by adding sliced almonds, fresh raspberries and a drizzle of chocolate on top. It turned out gorgeous! Other than the additional toppings, the only other change I made was to use 1-1/3 pkgs of the unflavored gelatin, as recommended by another reviewer. Not sure how it would have been with just the 1 package, but I can say that the firmness was spot on using the 1-1/3 pkgs. One of my friends said it was the best cheesecake she has ever eaten!

I've been making this exact recipe for over 10 years and get numerous requests for it. My favorite way to dress this up for the holidays is to cut pirouette cookies in half and place them around the cheesecake. Then I tie a wire ribbon around the cookies. A little chocolate drizzle on the top and you have a show stopper of a dessert!

I have been making this recipe for years having gotten the recipe from my friend Susan (awesome cook!!). It's one of my most popular cheesecakes--and I make lots of them! I garnish with drizzles of chocolate ganache. It's important to add a bit more than just one package of the gelatin--I dissolve about 1 1/3 pkg. of gelatin in the 1/2 C. of cold water. I also make my crust with 15 graham crackers, 1/4 cup of sugar, mixed with 1/4 cup melted butter. I bake the crust at 350 degrees for 10 minutes, then allow it to cool before putting the Amaretto Mousse in. Soooo light and yummy!

I did not care for this recipe. Not much better than a Sara Lee frozen cake.
