DELICIOUS!!!!! I used 1 jar of home canned apples and made it into "apple pie filling" by following the recipe called Apple Pie Filling (skipped cooking the apples as mine were already cooked). This made enough filling for TWO cheesecakes. I also made my own graham cracker crust and added chopped pecans to the crust. It was an easy recipe to follow. If followed exactly, it will not fail! The pecans in the crust AND mixed into the caramel topping were the two things I added that made this even more outstanding than as written! Seriously, use pecans!! The best part is this cheesecake doesn't have to set overnight! It was ready to eat 2 hours after coming out of the oven. 1 hr to cool to room temperature, add topping, cool in fridge 1 more hour, DONE. Read More

i made this for a holiday party and it was a big disappointment. i i added 10 minutes of baking time (which was unusual because my oven tends to run hot) and even though the cheesecake seemed to be set ithe middle had a runny consistency. it looked pretty with the topping on it but the taste was off. i followed the recipe exactly.

I made this, using a bit more of the caramel tipping on top, and it was a big hit for our large family's Thanksgiving dinner!! I will definitely be making it again!! Read More

This was the first "real" cheesecake I ever made. My family loved it!! I did make one change: I omitted the pecans. We aren't really nut people and it didn't make sense to me why they were there in the first place. Otherwise: super easy and VERY yummy!! Read More

This is a delicious cheesecake. I found I needed to adjust the baking time to 45 - 50 minutes. Best to watch for doneness as oven temps varying. Read More

Awesome! My 9 year old daughter & I made this Cheesecake for a party this week. Everyone at the party raved about how perfect and yummy this dessert was. They said it was better than restaurant quality and I would have to agree. The recipe and the tips were easy to follow. The 2 comments or instructions I would add : Do not use a mixer when mixing the cream cheese mixture it starts to curdle; we stopped the mixer and used a whisk which did break down most of the curdles and smoothed out the mixture. We also placed a glass dish with 2 inches of water in the rack underneath the cheesecake when it was in the oven to keep the cheesecake top from cracking which I lis a technique that came from cooks country. This cheesecake is a winner and a keeper! Read More

this cheesecake had the perfect consistancy not too soft not too hard and was super delicious!! The only thing I did wrong was I used caramel syrup and really needed to be caramel topping so it would be thicker but it was still one of the best cheesecakes I have ever had Read More
