For an almost instant dessert, I spread homemade ganache and caramel sauce over pre-made cheesecake. It makes the holidays feel slightly less hectic. —Laura McDowell, Lake Villa, Illinois

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 1, 2014

"I made this the other day for my book club luncheon and I think it is one of the very best cheesecakes I have ever eaten. As the name implies, it is simple to prepare. I followed the recipe exactly and the only thing I would do differently would be to add more toasted pecans to the top. This recipe is over the moon good. Here is a link to my review and photos:
