    Should have read the 5 reviews first. Not at all like the picture, would have taken more food coloring, layering per instructions didn't give it this look, not even close. Stayed pretty flat, glad I didn't have the peppermint extract that I thought I did, because the mint gave it plenty of flavor, I added vanilla in it's place. And 45 minutes at 300, yeah I don't think so. I brought it to work, and it's being eaten, but I was ashamed to say I made it. I always read reviews, and just didn't this time, kind of like an impulse buy at the counter! Yuck!

    All I can say is gross. This is the absolute worst cheesecake I have every made. Nothing good about it. Thank God I made some mini ones for my kids and tasted this thing before I whipped it out for a party. That would have been ultra embarrassing! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME!

    I made this for a big group of people and while they were very complementary of the fluffy, light cake I was underwhelmed by it given the effort I put into it. I did not have issues with it being greasy, but I think the cream cheese was completely overshadowed by the mint extract - and not in a good way. Two of the biggest issues I had were that the batter needed A LOT more food coloring that the recipe called for (14 drops and it took almost four hours to cook thorough. I think I may have had better luck than the other reviewers here because I used more high quality vanilla extract than I was supposed to and I found cheap-o Wegman's brand chocolate waffer cookies that worked beautifully, but neither of those "saved" this for me and I wont make it again.

    I Can Not Believe How bad this Cheesecake is!!
    I make one Cheesecake every month for my family. I cook as well as bake and my family critiques me because I hope to, one day, make money by the trade. My Husband said, "You know I would never lie to you about what you cook, You're an amazing Chef, but That, Was the Worst thing I have ever tasted!" My Heart Sank!! Even though I need to toughen up to the negative comments, that's not what bugged me, that cheesecake's expense was HUGE!
    1. Store bought cookies (w/o baking them, the good ones cost $3. minimum $4.00
    2. Fresh Mint Leaves $3.00
    3. Store brand Sour Cream 2 for $2.00
    4. Heavy Cream $3.25
    5. 1/2 Dozen eggs $1.00
    6. Cream Cheese blocks 3 @ $1.20 = $3.60
    That's $16.85 not including the Whiskey I had to purchase, and the sugar, vanilla, extract,butter, & electricity that I also wasted on this Junk!

    Horrible! I made this for a party and was SO embarrassed and mad that I spent the time and money buying the ingredients to make this. The cake took much longer to bake than instructed...like three times as long....and my oven temp is on target, so that wasn't the issue. The crust turned out rubbery and the bottom of the pan was greasy. The "cheese cake" part of it fell apart and crumbled when served. I've made plenty of cheese cakes and this one was the worst. Don't waste your time or money.

    This was a disaster! All that time and expense and it turned out soupy and greasy. You need to check the baking time and ingredients! I have been baking for 50 years and never had this happen to me.
