No more excuses for not making cheesecake from scratch! This recipe is easy, and the result is a smooth, creamy, rich dessert that your friends will think that you bought at a fancy bake shop.

I love this recipe. Even my husband who isn't that fond of chocolate loved this cheesecake. I think we ate the whole thing in less than 2 days it was so good. And it was so easy to make

Very good and easy to make

It was delicious! I didn't feel like making the crust, so I bought 2 of the cookie crusts (it took both of them). Did everything else like the recipe said. Super yummy.

Easy, Tasty Cheesecake!

I think that this is a wonderful cheesecake. My mom used to make it for me ever since I was little. Now she had a little variation of it but, they both turn out the same!
