“I love this cheesecake recipe it's my favorite.The crust is so easy and so good.Just work with the crust a little until it's nice and crumbly, add a tablespoon or more butter if needed. The original recipe calls for 1/4 cup melted butter and I usually add a few extra tablespoons of butter, so I ajusted the recipe, fill free to add more if you think it looks to dry. The crust when done right, is what makes this cheesecake recipe stand out from all the others. I got this recipe from a coworker.”
