    Made the recipe as written, except for the pecan topping. I roasted pecans in butter in the oven for 10 minutes, then stirred and salted them and roasted them an additional 10 minutes before cooling and adding to the top of the cheesecake. My reason for only a 3 is that there simply is not enough caramel to make me think "Turtle" in this recipe. I would suggest drizzling caramel sauce over individual servings perhaps.

    It has become my signature cheesecake recipe. It takes awhile and is a little putzy w/ the three layers but it is what cheesecke is meant to be.

    Crust was too thin and stuck to the bottom of the pan, when the caramels melted - difficult to slice. Was not impressed with the dessert. Color was similar to picture but the crust did not look like the picture.
