This is the first cheesecake I've ever made, but I bake often. The flavor was spot on delicious! I absolutely loved the crust which kind of reminded me of Christmas, but was still light enough for the summer. I don't like walnuts so I used slivered almonds that I ground up in the food processor. The cheesecake has a lighter flavor than what I'm used to, but that's what I like about it. The only problem that I had was the HUGE split down the middle and it bubbled up and hardened around the edge of the pan. Also the cream cheese mixture darkened and hardened around the edges. I'm guessing this is because I mixed it too long...that's the only thing I can think of. Also, I pulled it out of the oven after 45 minutes. My oven usually cooks fast, but not that fast. I think the splitting and rising are my fault so I still give this 4 stars and will definitely keep using this recipe.
