Ratings & Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This recipee was a disaster! This recipee was a disaster! First of all, once the ingredients are all combined for the filling, there is way too much. I had about enough filling to make 2 cheesecakes. Second, it smelled awful and did not bake well at all. After the hr and 20 minutes it was still very gooey and burning on the top b/c of the excessive filling. I ended up throwing the whole thing away. It was a huge waste of money and my time.

I wonder if the person that rated it a "disaster", prepared it on an extemely humid or damp day or perhaps, something was not done exactly according to the recipe instructions. Hmmmm!

Maybe I did something wrong but I didn't think it was very good. I much prefer the cheesecakes made with all cream cheese. My husband who loves cheesecake also wasn't too crazy about it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from This cheesecake was pretty easy to make. This cheesecake was pretty easy to make. However, my family and I thought it was fluffy, but not really creamy. It also only had a faint cream cheese taste to it, not a lot of flavor.
