I love this cheesecake, it is a more dense cheesecake then the NY style one that I make but, the taste is wonderful. Don't have cinnamon chips? that's ok! you can just increase the ground cinnamon a bit and get the same great taste! drizzle caramel over the top and you'd be singing a happy song for sure! Enjoy!
