This is really nice. The cheesecake layer baked perfectly, no cracks. But I only baked for 45 minutes and let the cake sit in the oven for 15 minutes more.

I found it simple to make and the flavor is lovely. The brownie bottom was quite hard - difficult to cut hard. I stuck to the recipe and if I try it again I'll try baking it less.

This rich dessert is one of my new favorites! The brownie is moist and fudgy. The cheesecake is soft and airy. A delicious combo!

Wonderful. The second time I made this I put cherry pie filling on top. We just couldn't get enough of this. Took it to a meeting and it was the only dessert that was completely gone.
