Blue Cheese Walnut Cheesecake

This elegant party spread is smooth and creamy and has a mild blue cheese flavor. It's popular every time I serve it. Garnished with chopped walnuts, it looks like you fussed, but it's not that tricky to prepare. -Rita Reifenstein, Evans City, Pennsylvania

    No ingredient changes! I'd prepared pan by flouring. Sprinkled walnuts on cheesecake before I refrigerated it. I'd made this recipe sometime back when it appeared in Taste of Home! This is a delicious appetizer recipe!

    Made for my niece's bridal shower and everyone loved it. So, I made again for a wine tasting and I won a prize for best appettizer. I make if a lot.
