Absolutely wonderful!!! I have made this cheesecake for years and always get rave reviews. I made it for our last staff meeting at work and my coworkers loved it. Now I am asked to make it for every staff meeting. It's so easy to make. I recommend this recipe to anyone in need of a refreshing yet decadent dessert.
Instead of graham cracker crumbs, I use Zwieback crumbs. It adds more richness to the "shell" - it's a *****-star recipe to begin with but the buttery Zwieback makes this recipe unique.
