I am an experienced cook but not a baker. This is the first time I've ever made cheesecake. I was referred to this recipe by a friend.
I have eaten very little cheesecake in my life, but I can tell that this is the real thing!!! It is incredible. Creamy, rich, and with all the components that cheesecake should have.
I used a store-bought graham cracker crust (sorry!) and adjusted the recipe so that I only made 2/3 of it. It was full, but not overflowing, when I put the contents into the crust. After baking, the contents flattened (evenly) a bit so that it was perfect.
I did not do the water bath but did leave the cheesecake in the oven after shutting the oven off, with the door ajar to cool. It took a bit over 40 minutes to cook before the outside was set and the inside only "jiggled" - that is when I shut the oven off. It worked perfectly.
Four stars instead of five only because there is not enough crust in the original recipe.
