    Easy to follow recipe and oh so yummy
    Make this to the letter and it was terrible.
    Just made it today and it turned out so good and it tasted so great. Will make it again and again.
    I am sending this recipe recipe to my granddaughter who is learning to make cheesecake.
    I made this for a Christmas party and there was none left. I chose to garnish with a thick chocolate ganache (1cup heavy cream and 12oz semi sweet chocolate chips) This was such a hit, a friends sister in Brazil asked for the recipe.
    You can't forget about this cheescake! It turned out so well,that i got repeat requests
