I haven't tried this yet but wondered how you got the crumbs to stay on the sides of the pan?? I've always had to add melted butter -- thanks

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 31, 2009

I have been making this cheesecake since September 2009 and my family has requested that I make it every month.

The recipe is fool proof and quite simple to make. The best part it is delicious.
