I made this cheesecake for Christmas dinner and it was the best, most impressive dessert I've ever made. I live at a very high elevation so I had to modify the cooking time (increased baking time to 1 1/2 hours). I also thinned down the glaze with additional hazelnut liquor so it would spread easier. This is my new Christmas tradition! - 18 Jan 2001 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was SO impressive and SO delicious! I made it for a New Year's Eve dinner and everyone thought it was store-bought. It was very easy to make--even easier if you have a food processor to chop the ingredients for the crust. - 05 Feb 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This is a very rich and delicious cheesecake. My only suggestion would be to make all the crust ingredients (except for the melted butter) at once in the food processor (instead of chopping each one separately. I had lots of fun making (and eating) this cheesecake with my daughter. It cracked right away, we covered it with chocolate, and no one was the wiser! - 23 Mar 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
