slightly off topic, but if you want to make a savory cheesecake, crushed Wheat Thins or pretzels work great.

That sounds good. What would you make as a savory cheesecake?

Yes, you don't want them too fine, more coarse is best. My food processor isn't the best, so they don't turn to dust very quickly.

I like the vanilla wafers for my white chocolate raspberry swirl cheesecake. The original recipe called for chocolate, but I felt that the chocolate was too strong of a flavor for this cheesecake.

I've done that with great results, but I have also made a graham cracker crusts with spices and sugar added to them that I liked just as much!

Mmmm...smoked salmon cheese cake! Chorizo and cheese! Green and/or black olives. Roasted red peppers and asparagus.
