I made this cheesecake and it was ok... I was disappointed in the flavor. The cake itself tasted good, just like regular cheesecake, but didn't taste like maple at all. I didn't like the crust...

incredible. i couldn't find any maple leaf cookies in the short amount of time i had to get the ingredients, so i bought some belgian chocolate chunk cookies and just crumbled it up really well....

This recipe was easy to follow and turned out wonderful! My husband even liked it better than store bought. It was the first cheesecake I have ever made and I am glad I chose this recipe.

This is the easies cheesecake I ever made. Like the others, I could not find the Maple cookies and used graham crackers instead. This was a big hit at the neighbors dinner party.

The texture of this cheesecake was perfect and was super easy to make, but it was missing something for me...not sweet enough maybe or missing some flavor...not sure, just couldn't put my finger...

I made this cheesecake for our wedding dessert table as well! used boisetown maple syrup fresh from the shack and organic walnuts!

RAVE reviews! I used Ginger Snaps for the crust as suggested in another review since I couldn't find maple cookies. Turned out wonderful. Super simple to make.

Turned out great! Not too sweet! I used 1 cup of graham cracker crumbs in place of the crushed cookies.
