Is the butter in the crust supposed to be melted? The picture seems to show a topping over the cheesecake. I'm wondering what that is. Thank you. Sorry if you've already answered these questions!

Hi there! The butter would be best softened, but not melted. Thank you for asking.. I need to clarify that in the directions.

The topping you are referring to is just caramel as a topping/garnish. It's not part of the recipe at all. ;)
