So I bought a box of the mix so I could make the cheesecake on a lazy day.
I already had the rest of the ingredients I needed: 1 stick of butter, 3 eggs, and 16 ounces of cream cheese.
The instructions were short and simple. Melt the butter and add it to the base mix along with one egg, press that into the bottom of a pan, saving 1/3 cup for crumbling on top. Mix the cheese and the other 2 eggs with the cheesecake mix and pour that on top of the crust.
The problem came when I got to the instruction to crumble the remaining crust mixture on top of the cheese mixture. It was nowhere near crumbly. So I sort of broke off bits and scattered it on top.
The cheesecake was pretty good, but the alleged crumbles on top didn't look much better after baking than they did before. I think that if I make this mix again, I'll skip the crumbles, use all the crust on the bottom, and just have the caramel sauce on top.
