I made this cheesecake for dessert for Easter dinner. It was wonderful and got rave reviews from all my guests! I will definitely make this again.
Very good. I put them in mini cheesecake pans and added a couple drops of green food coloring to the geletin mixture. They set up right away and looked very impressive on my buffet table.
Outstanding flavor, creamy texture. A hit at our house.
