Friends have suggested over and over that I submit this creation to a magazine because it's so good. For the best texture, make sure not to overmix the batter. —Jamie Harris, Danville, Illinois

"This was fantastic! Creamy and not overly rich. It will definitely go into my recipe box and make another appearance at our dessert table"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 21, 2014

"This was fabulous! I haven't really made a cheesecake from scratch before, so I wasn't sure I was doing it right, but it turned out perfect. I served it for Easter, and my brother said it was the best he's ever had -- even better than Cheesecake Factory! I had purchased some raspberry pie filling in case it needed something more, but it was perfect as is. Thanks for this one!!"
