This is a fabulous cheesecake recipe, but I wanted to warn all those low-fat junkies out there that this recipe should not be modified. I made it once as directed (except used Oreo crumbs for the crust, which I highly recommend) and it turned out perfectly – tasted amazing! I made it a second time with 1/3 less fat cream cheese and it was really disappointing. I’m usually all for low-fat modifications because often you can’t really tell and it makes sweets a lot healthier, but resist the temptation here. It just doesn’t taste right and the texture is off. Go all out on this if you’re going to make it. And do make it because you will seriously impress your friends and family.
1 cup granulated sugar
6 tbsp salted butter, cut into 6 pieces
