    Absolutely the best cheesecake Ive made and everyone else thinks so too,lots of compliments. Being in oz I adapted the recipe to one packet scotch finger biscuits for the base and 1/3 cup melted butter. Worked perfectly and a can of mandarins and the cointreau made it beautiful .lovely smooth cheesecake ,little effort and great results i added choc and caramel sauces on each partner likes caramel i love choc lol  -  03 Jan 2016
