This was the first at home cheese cake I've ever tried and it's the only one I'll ever make! As per other helpful reviews I try an combine most suggested alterations after trying the recipe the way it supposed to be made. Now this is how my family/friends love it. A little extra vanilla in both layers. I add walnuts to the crust, plus I made the crust a little thicker by adding more wafers. An easy way to get the wafers super fine (because I don't have a lot of kitchen appliances) is to put the wafers in a ziplock, an just use a rolling pin to roll over those cookies. Fast, painless, an easy clean up. I always make my own whipped cream too as I can control exactly how that will taste.
And last, this time I decided to step out my comfort zone and instead of whipped cream w/the vanilla extract in it, I used raspberry extract. And for the top cheesecake mousse layer, instead of vanilla that too was substituted with raspberry.
Hoping for an awesome vanilla raspberry cheesecake topped with chocolate sauce? We'll see!
