    This is a "go to" for the holidays for our family . For Christmas, I fully grind a pack of peppermint candy canes (minus 1) and add that to the cheesecake . before serving, I top with additional cool whip and sprinkle with small broken pieces of the last candy cane... Its amazing ! Its requested every year at my work party. My daughter requests a chocolate version of this cheesecake every year for her birthday. Its such a great recipe and can be easily experimented with.

    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

    I have been making this cheesecake for years and it is always the first dessert to go. I even take orders for it during Christmas.

    This recipe was a hit at our annual dessert auction at church. I will definitely make this again. Easy to make, but looks like you fussed.
