""This is the best cheesecake I've ever had"....was the review at Christmas dinner today. Can't get much better than that! And coming from a man who likes to eat well!Fairly easy, be sure to read through and save yourself some time. I had a 10" pan which worked just fine. Cooking time was a bit longer....but in the wee hours I didn't keep track (sorry). I garnished with fresh raspberries. Some thought there should be a sauce, but my best personal reviewer said, "It's so moist it doesn't need a sauce"."
"This recipe soooo good!!! This is the best cheesecake I have ever had, and my family agrees! Will be making this again and again!"
"Perfect and easy to make!"
"This was fantastic! I added a second layer of raspberry jam in the center. I also used a shortbread crust instead of graham."
"This is my family's favorite!! We all LOVE this cheesecake."
"I don't know if it was my oven or the recipe but I only cooked this cheesecake for 70 minutes and it was overcooked and overbrowned. I tried a piece though and it was great. The only modification I made was melting white chocolate baking bars and adding it instead of the white chocolate chips."
"I made this cheesecake for a homecoming party and everyone loved it. I'm going to make another one today!!"
"This was excellent!! May put some raspberry in the middle of the filling or a little extra next time. Made for Easter dinner, delicious!"
"Made this for a Christmas party. Now it is all I'm allowed to bring."
"I make this ALL of the time for a gal that I work with and she always comes back with rave reviews with the people that she shared it with..but instead of raspberry jam I use real raspberries verrrry yummy! I cook the raspberries and 1/2 cup of sugardown and then thicken with cornstartch and push that through a wire sieve and I save some to make a topping..this raspberry sauce powdered sugar and Nestle premelted chocolate and drizzle on top of cake when the cake is cooled. very pretty."

"I love the white chocolate raspberry cheesecake from Olive Garden and I was hoping this would taste similar... and it did! I used chocolate graham crackers instead of regular for the crust."
"I have made this cheesecake at least 20-30 times. It is the overall favorite with family and friends. I use crushed Nilla Wafers instead of the graham cracker crust. I have to make 2 at one time, so my husband will have one if I am giving the other away."
