I made this for my boyfriend's birthday. I don't like cheesecake but he said it was very good, as did his friends. I doubled the white chocolate as suggested in other reviews, but we found it still only tasted like a hint of white chocolate rather than a definite white chocolate cheesecake. I didn't make the sauce. I tried an oreo crust, prebaking it before putting the cheesecake mixture in, but it turned out very soggy. I think it might have been because springform pans tend to leak, if I try this again I will use a regular pan with a wax paper lining. I did put the cake IN the water bath, despite another reviewer suggesting putting it OVER the bath, as the point of the bath is to insulate the cheesecake from high heat and to control the rate at which heat gets to the cheesecake - if not done then the cheesecake will lose it's moisture. It had absolutely no cracks, but it did have quite a few bubbles which I couldn't seem to get rid of prior to baking. This was my first cheesecake, and though the crust was a major disappointment it was not part of the original recipe, so overall I think the recipe itself was very good but more of a white chocolate flavor and fewer bubbles would've made it perfect.
