    love it!! I like to double the recipe for the crust though. I prefer the crust to come up around the sides as well.

    This recipe was really good! I've made it twice now and learned that the key to a smooth cheesecake is completely incorporating the room temp cream cheese with all the other ingredients before adding the eggs

    I made this and it is really easy, I did add an 8 oz. cup of sour cream to this recipe to give it a little bite, tasted really good, my family loved it . I will defiantly make it again.

    I thought this recipe was really good! I made it for a group of friends and they all said it was equally delicious! The texture is extremely smooth and it is not overly sweet so I would definitely recommend this recipe and, because it is also pretty simple, I will definitely be making it again!
