    I used butter instead of shortning, and I increased the cream cheese to 1 cup. I also added a crumb toping of: 1/2 cup sliced almonds 1 cup flour 3/4 cup oats 1/4 cup brown sugar 1 tsp nutmeg 1 tsp cinnamon 1/2 cup marg 2 tblsp whipping cream and just used my fingers to mix it till crumbly and sprinkled it over the top. Really good!  -  26 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    I tweaked this recipe a bit...I used 8oz of 1/3 less fat cream cheese, a pint of blueberries and vanilla instead of almond. More cheesecake like on top, cake-like on the bottom, like a pastry.  -  11 Jul 2004  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
