This by far is the best cheesecake recipe. Easy to follow directions and it turned out perfect. Instead of making the topping the recipe used, I used 2 10 oz bags of frozen strawberries from the Dollar Store and put them in a small pan with 3/4 cup sugar, 3/4 cup water and brought to a boil. Turned down and as they softened I mashed them which took about 15 min. to thicken. Also used a stabilized whipped cream recipe that takes no talent to make. 1 pint of cold heavy whipping cream, dash of vanilla, 1/3 cup of powdered sugar, and 1 tablespoon of instant vanilla pudding and beat with whisk attachment on high for a few minutes till stiff enough to pipe around edges of cheesecake.. My family loved this cheesecake and it will not disappoint even with no topping at all. Will be my go to recipe from now on.
