This was one of the best cheesecakes I've ever eaten. Even some of my family who do not like cheesecake, thought this was great. I made it twice within a 2 wk period. I am not a baker at all and was able to make this delicious dessert. The only problem I ran into, was the receipe calls for a 1 layer cake mix and I didn't notice that and used a 2 layer cake mix. Turned out not to be a problem, I just let the cake cool, then opened the springform pan and used dental floss to cut the cake in 1/2. Put the springform pan back on the cake and it worked beatifully. I can't wait to make this again. Hum, Father's Day is around the corner. I'm sure my husband would love to have some of this cheesecake.
