Introduction: Cheesecake is a very popular desert and can be found on almost any restaurant menu. It consists of one or more layers. The main, and thickest layer, consists of a mixture of soft, fresh cheese (typically cream cheese or ricotta), eggs, and sugar; and a bottm layer consists of a crust or base made from crushed cookies, crackers, pastry, or sponge cake. The combination of the cream cheese and Nutella in this recipe is a winner, try it out and I hope you will concur.
