I was making 2 cheesecakes and didn't have enough cream cheese to finish my 2nd one. I went looking for a recipe that only used 3 cream cheeses and this one came up. I baked both and this one turned out lighter and better with a lot less work than my other one! I did put it in a water bath like I always do and added ground walnuts and a little sugar to the crust for extra flavor. This is a wonderul and easy recipe. Thanks for posting it is my new favorite cheese cake! Read More

I made this recipe exactly as written. The cheesecake collapsed and the texture was grainy. I should have been wary since this recipe has been on this site for many years and has never taken off. There are other easy and delicious cheesecake recipes out there. Read More

Followed the directions with no changes made. The cheesecake while baking unfortunately overflowed quite a bit - drippings everywhere on the bottom of my oven. It settled back down though. AFter baking the top of the cheesecake cracked quite a bit. The taste was quite good but there are better. Read More
