    I have made this for friends, family, special functions, work colleagues...you name it. EVERY single time, this recipe turns up a WINNER. I love the fact that you bake it in a 13x9 pan, which is unusual for a cheesecake. It always "stands out" on the dessert table, and never lasts long. A Kraft *******, in my recipe book!!
