“I am a true cheesecake lover, and I think I have tasted nearly every kind of cheesecake there is, and made plenty of them in my lifetime!! This recipe is a very good cheesecake, I like it especially with the mangoes, This is one of the lighter cheesecakes, so it is light on the cream cheese - but very tasty - ENJOY!!”
