    THE BEST CHEESECAKE EVER!!!  -  04 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Beyond yummy. I used Grand Marnier Liquer instead of whisky. I also used orange extract instead of orange zest. I served it with a sweet strawberry sauce.  -  05 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
