I give this 5+++ hands down, and I believe everyone I served this cheesecake to would agree with me. I made the cheesecake for the first time, for a friend's birthday party and it was fabulous! I've made other cheesecake recipes before that were good, but this is above and beyond good. If I hadn't made it myself you could have served it to me and said it was from The Cheesecake Factory and I would have believed you, it was that good. It was creamy and smooth with the right amount of sweetness and no overwhelming cream cheese flavor. I served the cheesecake with a strawberry sauce, but it would have been great plain. This recipe will be the based for many many cheesecake variations in the future.
My only issue was with the crust, instead of 15 graham crackers I just went ahead and used 2 packages which was 18 crackers, so I used 3 T. butter and that didn't seem like anywhere near enough, so I ended up using 5-6 T. Even if I would have used just 15 graham crackers I don't think the 2 T. of butter would have been enough.
