Ok, now i havent tasted it yet. Saving it for an Easter dinner tomorrow. BUT I did follow all the suggestions so it wouldnt crack. Mine STILL cracked. I used room temp ingrediants, I did bake it in a water bath, put 2 layers of foil around my springform, and let it bake for 60 minutes, used a buttered knife to seperate the cheesecake and the pan then let it sit in the oven for 5 hours. IT STILL CRACKED! What else could I have done!!! Not only did it crack, but I also got WATER in the bottom of my crust. Now if my crust is mushy tomorrow....I will NOT be impressed...
So my crust was not only mushy, but completely inedible. I understand it was not the recipe's fault, as I followed reviews instead of sticking to the tried, tested and true recipe. I know better for next time, because there WILL be a next time. The cheesecake itself turned out fantastic. Very creamy, and rich and good. I do not reccomend putting it in a water bath. Mine cracked anyways, plus it leaked water in my crust, and made the crust horrible.
