    Sharlene~W's Note:

    My husband loves German Chocolate Cake and cheesecake. He nearly flipped when he set eyes on this luscious cheesecake. Who says you can't have it all? A couple of tips--beat batter gently as over beating can cause the cheesecake to puff up and then fall and crack. Also don't test if it is done by inserting a knife--gently shake the pan. The center should appear nearly set although it might jiggle just slightly in the middle inch. You definitely don't want to overcook! From "Heartland Baking" cookbook.

      Huge hit, everyone loved it. Perfect balance of ingredients. Really easy to make since my wife made it for me (he,he). Seriously everyone wanted a copy of the recipe and of course I printed them. Anyway we had a little Oktoberfest at our home and I found this recipe and thought what a great idea, and it was. Definitely a keeper. We did use a store bought crust to save on time. Thanks for posting Sharlene.
