Used different ingredients. For a yummy twist, use ginger nuts instead of digestive biscuits. - 15 May 2010


made this in the summer, first time i have made cheescake, was really easy and very yummy.I drizzled chocolate on top to make it more appealing to my 2 kids (chocoholics) I needn't have worried.Hopefully this wasn't beginners luck. - 15 Jan 2012
