I made this cheesecake for a dinner party. It was easy and the taste was decadent. I find what makes any recipe easy is to have all the items prepared in advance such as the cookies crumbled and everything set out. Thanks to whomever submitted this recipe. It received rave reviews from everyone. They thought I was a master baker
