    This is a fantastic recipe for Cheesecake lover's but you must double the recipe if not at least increase by half. If you don't you will end up with a pretty pathetic looking cheesecake.  -  05 Nov 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very good Cheesecake, my family raved about it. Although, next time I will double the recipe to better fit my pan. It came out a little short.  -  21 Feb 2002  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I changed mine slightly by leaving out all the stuff to make the spice crust.. All I used were the graham crackers and butter. I also had to up the amount of cream cheese and other ingredients since my pan was bigger then 9 inches. For the top all I put was caramel, but the items used to make the actual cheesecake part I have to say made an awesome tasting cheesecake.  -  06 Dec 2001  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
