If you have never made a cheesecake, this is a great recipe for you! It doesn't require the daunting "water bath" that most cheesecakes require. I'm giving it a 5 because of the fairly easy preparation (okay, the crust was time consuming and I didn't dip the hazelnuts in chocolate for the top), the great presentation (this looks fabulous and expensive), and the *delicious* flavor. BUT, I must admit it didn't quite taste the rich hazelnutty way I expected. I crumbled a chocolate hazelnut bar on the top and when I tasted a piece of the bar I realized that was the flavor I was hoping for (like Nutella) but the hazelnut liqueur just wasn't able to give it that flavor. Next time I might spread Nutella across it the top instead of the chocolate/hazelnut liqueur mixture. All that said, I still think this is a fantastic cheesecake and it is definitely worth trying if this is your first attempt at cheesecake!
