  4. Beat the cream cheese and remaining 1 1/3 cups sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until the mixture is creamy. Beat in the soup, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the vanilla extract. Pour the batter into the pan.
  5. Bake for 55 minutes or until the center is almost set. Let the cheesecake cool in the pan on a wire rack for 2 hours. Cover and refrigerate for 4 hours or overnight.

This was ok. The texture was fine and I did not have cracking (used pan of water on lower rack). This did not have much of a ginger flavor. I thought the crust was bland and I did add a pinch of ground ginger to the cookie crumbs.

Made this last night and it was very easy to make and turned out excellent. I found that I ended up with more filling than I needed though

Easy to make, creamy, the crust is very tasty. I know ovens can vary but definitely needed more than 55 minutes in mine. Also could have used a little more spice, the filling flavor was very faint and I could taste the tomato at times. I think 1/4 teaspoon more of cinnamon and nutmeg would have been good. Thanks for sharing!

I made this (also my very first ever cheese cake) and it was very easy! But nothing at all about it is 'gingery' so I added some dried, ground ginger. I also cooked it for an hour. I topped it with honey vanilla ginger glaze (another recipe from here that I altered a bit to suit the cake better)
