This is the first cheesecake I've ever made from scratch. It is so delicious. I didn't top mine with fruit. It was great plain. My cheesecake didn't turn out as thick as the one pictured. I suppose I didn't use the same size pan. The only downfall, was the prep. The recipe lists 30 minutes as the amount of prep time. I think it took me an hour. I toasted the pecans and grounded them with the graham crackers. I mixed the cheesecake by hand. Oh and in the first step of the batter process, my melted chocolate and sugar wouldn't mix right. I just went ahead and added the cream cheese and it was a lot easier to mix. Great, great, great cheesecake. I can't wait to make my next one.
