There are plenty Cheese Cake Recipes available and I believe it is because it is so versatile. You can literally take the basic recipe and just add different products to it. If you want berries, you add berries, if you want chocolate you add chocolate to the basic recipe.

You will note that most of the recipe's bases are the same. They all follow the same recipe but remember that you can change your biscuits. You do not have to use a certain biscuit. You can even use Lady Fingers if you like to. It totally depends on how you want the end product. My  next project will be an Oreo Cheesecake!
