Even though she's my bestie (thanks Rach!) and she's probably just prejiduice and showing me the love, after badgering me to post this recipe as "the best cheesecake you'll ever have", I finally gave way - it is a damn good cheesecake after all is said and done. :)
And, while I truly wish I could take credit for this delectably decadent dessert, the truth is it's actually a Susie Fishbein recipe-child. It's her "3 Layer Cheesecake" from Kosher By Design Entertains. The secret - and listen up here! - is to double the cheesecake part of the recipe! Shh! Just do it.
