Fabulous recipe! To make this a relatively guilt-free pleasure, I used 4 (8 oz) packages of reduced-fat cream cheese and used fat free sour cream. The end result was a more fluffy-textured cheesecake that didn't sacrifice on flavor. I garnished the top with fresh sliced strawberries.
Very good recipe. I actually make this for my Dad because he is diabetic. I do not use the crust, I use splenda instead of sugar. Very good.
I didnt have a springform pan, so i cut the recipe in half, except for the crust and baked it in an 8 by 8 glass pan...turned out awesome!!
It's a fuss-free, simple and straight forward recipe. Great for newbies like me who are just experimenting with simple baking. If you do not have a sweet tooth, do not add sugar to the base. Just the cookies and melted butter will do. I even reduced the sugar further in the cheese mixture and it tastes great. My family enjoyed it so much. Nice and smooth texture too. I will bake it again :)
Total indulgence! Didn't have a 9" spring form, so put in a large glass pie pan. Had a little goo left that wouldn't fit in the pan w/o overflowing. Even tho we had eaten a large dinner, none of us could resist a small wedge of dessert.
I have made this cheescake for a couple years now. The previous recipe called for strawberry jam. I will admit, it seems like forever to make, but it is well worth it!!!! I have to make this every Thanksgiving and Christmas. The good thing about this recipe is that it makes enough that I can take half to work for everyone and still have plenty at home!
LOVED this cheesecake! It's been many years since I last made a cheesecake but after many dissapointments with store-bought, I offered to bring a homemade NY style cheese cake to a family dinner. I used a spring form pan and a pan of water in the stove. I did get one crack but otherwise this cheese cake turned out PERFECT! A lot of critical mouths had seconds and thirds of this great recipe. Don't be concerned if you get a crack in the cake because it will still taste great and can be easily covered with topper. I read many reviews and the do's and don'ts. DO: use room temp ingredients. DO: use name brand ingredients. DO: bake for an hour then turn off the oven and let sit in the oven with the door closed for several hours.
This cheesecake is wonderful and easy!
