Easy and delicious! I used Ginger Snaps as crust - which I wouldn’t recommend as the molasses made the crust a bit hard. Served with homemade caramel sauce and it was a hit!

Turned out great!!! I did add cinnamon to the crust. First one had a crack. The second one, I put foil around the pan and added the eggs last and no cracks!

Great recipe! Very well balanced in terms of sweetness and softness. Just replaced the vanilla waffles by spéculos biscuits I had in my cupboard... Accompanied it with a raspberry lemon sauce and it turned out to be one of the best cheesecake I ever ate!
