Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It's a good recipe, I substitute Almond Extract instead of Vanilla. It's a good recipe, I substitute Almond Extract instead of Vanilla. Personal preference of mine and everybody goes crazy over it. Butter is another problem, it leaks out of my pan on to the bottom of the oven and starts smoking. I've seen other members suggest cutting the butter in half and I totally agree. Last time I just put a cookie sheet under the pan to catch the drips. Finally, I stopped putting in the layer of caramel at the bottom. I use dark chocolate for the top and top within an hour of serving so the chocolate and caramel don't get hard before the cake gets cut.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from to "Cloefelts" I came across this recipe and was just browsing reviews when I saw your question... to "Cloefelts" I came across this recipe and was just browsing reviews when I saw your question about the crack in your cheesecake? My mother and I have battled this out for years...lol...we both have our own way, she puts a pan of water in the oven under her cheesecake because she says it dries and thats why it cracks...i let my cream cheese get to room temperature before mixing, i think it's because when the cream cheese is cold just out of the fridge it tends to not blend as well and the consistency doesn't come out right, it's been years and we're both always right...lol..just can't figure out why?

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I just made this last night and the chessecake was good, but for some reason my crust was hard? I just made this last night and the chessecake was good, but for some reason my crust was hard??? not sure where i went wrong next time i will use gramham cracker crust i did add couple more ingredents: Add 2 TBS flour, and 1/4 tsp salt to the cheesecake filling, and 1 1/2 cup sugar. This is the most important step when making any cheesecake. This is the water bath technique, helps with even cooking, resulting in a smooth cheesecake surface. In the lower rack place a roasting pan half full with warm water. On the top rack place the spring form pan on a cookie sheet for baking. <<< Response from Kraft Kitchens Expert, Wendy ~ If the crust is hard and difficult to cut, allow cheesecake to stand at room temperature 30 minutes prior to cutting to soften the caramel layer. >>>

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe was excellent! This recipe was excellent! I couldn't find the boxed Oreo crumbs or chocolate graham cracker crumbs, so I just bought two tin pie plates with the Oreo crumbs in them. (Hint: for two of the tin pie plates, cook at 325 degrees for 40 minutes - perfect!). I took both pies to a Super Bowl party, where everyone swore I must have bought them pre-made! Drizzling the chocolate gives them a professional "finished" look. I'll definitely make this again.

This is what I always bring to Christmas potlucks because I never have to worry about bringing home leftovers. It's a family tradition (like fudge) that I only make it at Christmas time too. The only thing I haven't figured out is how to not get my cheesecake to crack on top. I wonder if it's because I live in a high altitude area? Also, I've kind of shortened the prep time to make this by using caramel and chocolate syrups; that way I don't have to worry about melting anything, using too much milk, etc.

I used chocolate graham crackers for the crust, using a bit more than called for to be sure to have enough to go up the sides. I subbed caramel ice cream topping for the caramel candy/milk mixture. I also put a pan of water into the oven as the cheesecake baked to keep the top from cracking. It was easy, it was delicious, and it was very well received at my family's Thanksgiving table. This was the first cheesecake I ever made, but it surely will not be the last!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from WARNING! WARNING! Learned the hard way. If you use Oreo cookies with the filling, which I did for the first time since it was 'bye-bye boxed Oreo crumbs,' you have to cut the butter in half (to 3T)! If you don't you will get a gooey mess before and hard, chewy crust after. Even the new recipes posted on the cream cheese boxes call for half the butter now along with the crushed cookies. Good grief - what a headache! My last two cents...stay away from double stuff!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I made this for a special get together with friends. I made this for a special get together with friends. It looked so beautiful they all thought it was store bought. However, it just didn't taste right. The cheesecake part tasted very funny, the caramel mixture at the bottom made it impossible to cut, and the caramel on top oozed everywhere. I wouldn't have minded if it had tasted good - I LOVE turtle - but I was so disappointed. Next time, I'll just make the vanilla bean cheesecake from Kraft instead.
