"A delicious smooth cheesecake served with or without a fruit topping. I like to make this cheesecake a day or so before I wish to serve it. It always seems to taste better with the extra setting time."

I made this recipe for my son's 21st birthday dinner. It turned out fantastic - everyone raved! I did make a few changes based on other reviews - 2 C of graham cracker crumbs and doubled the b...

This recipe was yummy! After my boyfriend had some, things got pretty hot and heavy faster than a New York minute ;-). The cakes didn't firm up quite as much as I would have liked, and we used a...
