This was the best cheesecake I have ever had from any store, restaurant or personally made. Absolutely delicious. The only thing I did different is that I ran a knife around the edge after removing from the oven before it cooled rather than waiting for it to cool all the way to prevent the top from cracking when cooling.

Absolutely delicious! Be sure to use real butter, and not a butter substitute. Thinking I'd reduce the cholesterol, I made the mistake of using a "healthy choice", but the cookie crumb crust did not set up well (as the "butter" did not harden, rather stayed in a rather liquid form.). Otherwise ... it was wonderful!

This cheesecake was easy to make and incredibly delicious. More a wonderful mousse consistency than traditional baked cheesecake. Easily make gluten-free, which I did, by using Trader Joe's GF ginger snaps for the crust and substituting 3 Tbsp of tapioca flour for the regular flour. The dessert was the first to get called for seconds at our Thanksgiving meal. A total winner!

By far one of the best cheesecakes I've ever made. The ginger snap cookie crust is amazing. I followed the recipe and the cooking instructions to the letter. I brought this to our Thanksgiving potluck at work and it received rave reviews.

I used a can of sweetened condensed milk and a liquid whipping cream in the mix, instead of the sour cream. Came out wonderful.

The best cheesecake ever. I get rave reviews whenever I make it. The only thing I found was that the recipe makes too much batter for a 9" springform pan. So I make smaller cakes using small Pyrex round bowls with the extra batter. These make great individual treats.
