The first time I made this I followed the recipe to a "T" and didn't like the crust. The next time I made this recipe I changed the crust to a standard graham cracker crust: one pack of graham crackers, 1/4 cup sugar, 1/4 cup melted butter. I've used different fruits (blueberry, cherry & apples). Also, I baked the cheesecake for one hour at 300 degrees (in a water bath). After the cooking time, I let it sit in the oven for another hour. People LOVED the cheesecake! - 22 Jun 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I made it with Blackberry pie filling and it was terrific. Using the pan of water during the baking made for a moist cheesecake that didn't crack. Looked beautiful. I dizzled a little bit of left over blackberry pie filling over the top of each piece before serving! - 25 Apr 2000 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
