I do not know much about cheesecakes and this is the first recipe I have ever tried to cook. The filling is outstanding! However... the crust was very, very bland. After talking to others, I decided to use a graham cracker crust (crushed graham crackers--two sleeves + brown sugar+ stick of melted butter). Grahman cracker crust does not have to be baked before hand. I will also say here that I did as other suggested and whipped the cream cheese with an electric mixer before I added any other ingredients and if the cream cheese is gunkying up the mixer, go ahead and add the heavy cream. Cream cheese takes forever to come to room temperature (even out of packages) so I have started microwaving the cream cheese at 10% power in the microwave until it starts to become more malleable. Anyway, I've made this recipe about 7-9 times already and it's pretty darn good!! Very rich! :)
