    Very good. I used chocolate wafer cookies instead of the oreos, but next time I would use the oreos or more butter because the crust was a little too crumbly. Cheesecake was easy to make and impressive looking. Perfect for our holiday dinner.

    Great cheesecake but I think 4 pkgs of cream cheese was too much for 9" pan, it nearly filled pan and almost overflowed while baking. Also 325 oven seemed a little high. There was just a hint a burnt taste to the crust. Next time I do this it will be with 3 pkgs cream cheese and a 300 deg. oven.

    This recipe was easy to do, even though it was my first cheesecake attempt. It tasted awesome and was a hit at the office.
