This was my 3rd cheesecake recipe. Although the first one I tried (from Allrecipes) I have made 3 times - White Chocolate Blueberry Cheesecake. Compared to that this was bland. But, still good. I doubled the crust recipe because I like mine halfway up the side of the cake. I also clarified the butter. I did the pan of water in the oven as suggested but still developed a massive canyon of a crack in the cake - I am sure my fault and not that of the recipe. So I took one user's advice and made a chocolate sauce to pour into the crack. I used mini chocolate chips, sugar, milk and corn syrup. Also, 55 minutes baking time was too long for my oven, the cake turned an unattractive brown color around the edges and top. And, if you forget to put the mini chips in and accidently pour the batter into the crust never fear. You can still gently mix them in, just be careful not to disturb the crust. On the flavor issue, it was a very good tasting cake. If you want flavor, you have to make a flavored cake ie)peanut butter or chocolate. This is a very good basic cheesecake.
