I wish I could give this more stars! Italian cheesecake is so different from the usual cream cheese based cake that there is really no comparison. I didn't need as much cake as the recipe clearly states it makes, so I halved the filling, but retained the base as written. I ended up with one 9" cheesecake and 4 individual tarts. The balance of flavors is perfect, I was a little concerned it might be to strong an anise flavor but it isn't. This isn't an inexpensive cake, so save your pennies for that super special occasion (mine is my DS birthday) and then enjoy this decadent treat. Thanks, Bon Appetit - this is perfect!
