Unfortunately, I was not as impressed as I hoped I would be... for one reason: the cook temperature turned out to be too low for my personal taste. The cheesecake turned out too creamy/custard-like instead of the texture of New York cheesecake. I've made lots of cheesecakes at lots of temperatures but this one just didn't work for me. I did make the alterations of using 3 packages of cream cheese and 4 eggs. I also added a tad more sugar because I kept the 3/4 cup of lime juice (I'm pregnant, I love lime!). I also added lime zest to the mixture. It TASTES amazing, but the texture doesn't work. After baking at 250 for 60 minutes, I took it out wanting to give it a shot at setting up. It only cracked and didn't change texture, so I put it back in the oven at 300 for 15 minutes. That did the trick... luckily I don't care about cracking. Haha. Overall I would recommend this, but with previous suggestions and upping the temperature if you like hard cheesecake like me!
