"I have made this recipe numerous times and it always impresses my guests. I can't find lady fingers so I used nilla wafers. Can't get over how easy this is and looks like it is difficult to make."

"Wow, everyone loved this cake. I could not find lady fingers so I used Milano Double Chocolate cookies. They fit perfect. Also, I crumbled up half a bag of the cookies on top of the crust and filled in the spaces at the bottom. I added half a cup of brown sugar with the first 1/2 cp of milk and beat it for about 5 minutes. My husband was so impressed."

"I love this recipe. I've made it tons of times. I change out toppings as needed. It's nice for summer when its' too hot to turn on the oven but you still want a nice dense homemade tasting cheesecake. Presents beautifully for parties and gatherings as well"

"A delightful cheescake recipe. Finding ladyfingers was very difficult for me, so I used shortbread cookies instead. They worked fine and happened to just match a cheesecake serving size. Also, found that using about 4 tablespoons of butter in the crust worked great instead of 2/3's cup of butter. Try this recipe whether or not you try my changes."
