    Love it!
    I followed this recipe exactly and it came out great! I got rave reviews at a family party and was even told this was my best cheesecake ever. I'm known in the family for my cheesecakes, so that's saying a lot.
    This is a favorite with my family and friends. It is simple to make and delicious to eat
