Master Recipe for Rich and Creamy Cheesecake
The Master Cheesecake recipe was very light and flavorful with a wonderful soft and featherweight texture. I followed the recipe's directions exactly, struggling somewhat with configuring the foil around the springform pan, but finally got it right! Also, I used the Famous Chocolate Wafers to coat the sides and bottom of the pan...a very, very thin coating that really didn't leave a crust at all once the cheesecake came out of the oven. Couple of suggestions: the Master Cheesecake recipe says forty minutes in the oven (in the bain marie). My batch could have gone another 8-10 minutes (and my oven was calibrated at 325 degrees). Then, as the recipe stated, I turned off the heat and left the oven door ajar for thirty minutes. Also, I don't understand just using 3 tablespoons of crumbs to line the sides of the pan...not enough. Should I have not lined the bottom of the pan? I guess I am use to the traditional thick graham cracker crust. Anyway, bottom-line here: excellent taste and texture and so light that you "almost" feel guiltless eating it!
