This cheesecake tastes even better a day or two or three after it's made. (It's never lasted longer than that at our house!)

This was the first cheesecake I've ever made and it turned out real well (and tasted really good!). There are better cheesecakes I've tasted but considering how basic the ingredients are and how simple it was to make is why I rated it a 5. Read More

I have used this recipe several times and it has become the family's favorite. A Must Have at Thanksgiving dinner. I do use a more traditional graham cracker crust and set a bowl of cherry pie filling on the side for those who wish to cover their cheesecake. Read More

I have tried this cheesecake 2 times its good but not everyone loves the tangy taste of so much lemon. I tried AGAIN a third time but WITH MY OWN trust me a lot of research was done for the perfect recipe and I came up with my own using a lot of different ideas. I tried it last night and it came out Magnificent. HAD A TASTE TEST AND EVERYONE WHO TASTED IT LOVED IT. It was smooth and creamy and not one crack and for someone who has baked only 3 cheesecakes I was very pleased its just what I want my cheesecake to taste like. Read More
