I was nervous about trying this recipe because this would be my first cheesecake. I've made the Jello boxed cheesecake and that just doesn't count as a real cheesecake, complete with springform pan and everything! It was really easy, in fact, too easy! I want to make another one because it was so delicious! I followed the suggested baking directions of ten minutes at 450, twenty to thirty minutes at 250 then an hour in the oven with it off. A couple of minutes after putting the cheesecake in the oven at 450, it smelled like it was burning. I wasn't sure what to do so I left it alone and turned it down at eight minutes after, not ten. After it was baked and cooled, I did not have any cracks and it did not taste or look burnt. I really don't know what was burning but it there had been a burning cake smell, not as if something else was burning in the oven. Anyway, everyone who had a piece declared it to be one of the best cheesecakes they've ever had. My husband doesn't care for nuts in a cake but he never once complained about the pecans in this cheesecake. I'm so glad I tried this recipe! Maybe I won't be so nervous about trying new recipes in the future. Thank you for submitting this recipe!
