This is my easy go to recipe for any turtle Cheesecake, that I make, and I make my cheesecakes in various shapes, Round, Square as you see here, and also Heart Shape depending on the occassion that I am making it for. It is very simple, and easy, and in the picture that was taken for a photo shoot, I used all halves, and arranged them first on the cake, before adding the remainder of the topping. So it is versatile, just use your imagination.
