I used chocolate graham crackers for the crust, using a bit more than called for to be sure to have enough to go up the sides. I subbed caramel ice cream topping for the caramel candy/milk mixture. I also put a pan of water into the oven as the cheesecake baked to keep the top from cracking. It was easy, it was delicious, and it was very well received at my family's Thanksgiving table. This was the first cheesecake I ever made, but it surely will not be the last!
It's a good recipe, I substitute Almond Extract instead of Vanilla. Personal preference of mine and everybody goes crazy over it. Butter is another problem, it leaks out of my pan on to the bottom of the oven and starts smoking. I've seen other members suggest cutting the butter in half and I totally agree. Last time I just put a cookie sheet under the pan to catch the drips. Finally, I stopped putting in the layer of caramel at the bottom. I use dark chocolate for the top and top within an hour of serving so the chocolate and caramel don't get hard before the cake gets cut.
Best Cheesecake ever! I have been making it for years and everyone loves it!
I have made this recipe at least 4 times and I get the same response. Can I have this recipe or I love this cheesecake. The best compliment I recieved was, how much would you charge me to make this. Of course my response was I'm not a professional baker. Just trust Kraft recipes and you will be a hit with your freinds and family. Thank you Kraft you make it so easy for me to put a smile on many faces.
I've made this at least 10 times. Have not found anyone who does not like it.
YUM! Besides the taste - which is fabulous - one of the best things is that it looks professionally made. After reading the reviews about the difficulty with the crust - I used chocolate graham crackers instead of oreos. It worked great.
WARNING! Learned the hard way. If you use Oreo cookies with the filling, which I did for the first time since it was 'bye-bye boxed Oreo crumbs,' you have to cut the butter in half (to 3T)! If you don't you will get a gooey mess before and hard, chewy crust after. Even the new recipes posted on the cream cheese boxes call for half the butter now along with the crushed cookies. Good grief - what a headache! My last two cents...stay away from double stuff!
Turned out great...except for the crust. The crust was so hard...could not be cut w/knife. Could not bite into it or chew it. Hard, Hard, Hard!!!!!
We also had this for Thanksgiving, it was delicious! It was gone in 20 minutes. I agree the crust was a bit hard, but I will try adding a little margarine to the caramel when I make it. If that don't work, we will still gobble it up.
I made this for a special get together with friends. It looked so beautiful they all thought it was store bought. However, it just didn't taste right. The cheesecake part tasted very funny, the caramel mixture at the bottom made it impossible to cut, and the caramel on top oozed everywhere. I wouldn't have minded if it had tasted good - I LOVE turtle - but I was so disappointed. Next time, I'll just make the vanilla bean cheesecake from Kraft instead.
