I tried this cheesecake out on friends and they all loved it. Don't worry if it seems thin when pouring it into the crust. It sets up very nicely. I would definitely make this again!

I made this recipe for my employees and they couldn't get enough of it ( I made three)! Now all the ladies in my office make Friday's cheescake day! It also goes great with coffee!!!!

soooooooooooo divine

The amaretto was too strong. Since no one else in the house would eat it I had too much and this further reduced my opinion of it.
