Just WOW. This is the first cheesecake I've ever made and I got absolutely rave reviews. I usually don't eat any desserts that I make, but even I had to indulge! Everyone always asks for the recipe...and for seconds!

Sorry but I did not care for this at all. The almond extract is very overpowering. There was no praline taste to it at all.

This cheesecake was absolutely awesome. I've made alot of cheesecakes and this was one of the best. I had to substitute the sweetened condensed milk with heavy cream and a 1/2 cup sugar because my sweetened condensed milk was bad when I opened it. I also used toasted walnuts.

I've been making this recipe for years. I originally got it out of the Eaglebrand cookbook. It's a family favourite.
