It is a family tradition to make this for our Christmas dinner. And when my daughter was away from home, I made this for her birthday—I shipped it with candles on dry ice. —Jeanette Volker, Walton, Nebraska

"Absolutely delicious - the raspberry sauce was easy and mouth watering."

"An idea for junetennant: I've had great luck freezing cheesecake. Wrap pieces individually and place in a freezer bag. Another idea would be to make the whole cake and share the excess with your neighbors. They'll love you!"

MY REVIEW

"I have not tried this yet, as I just barely got it in my email box, but I fully intend to. You piqued my curiosity right off when you said you shipped it in dry ice. Where can I buy dry ice? I have a son and three sisters out of state, so I would like to copy your recipe and shipping method. By the way, the cheesecake sounds great to eat at home too! Thanks!"

"Awesome cheesecake, this is a winner, but next time I would make it the night before serving. I waited 2 hours before serving and it wasn't solid or set. The raspberry sauce plus whip cream is great."
