I made this cheesecake for Valentine's Day and it is AMAZING!!!!! I used seedless strawberry jam, added a tsp. of water and heated it in the microwave before adding it to the cheesecake.
I also followed the directions of others and wrapped my pan in foil and placed in a water bath. Cooked for 1 hour without opening the oven. Turned the oven off and let it remain in there for 1 more hour. After that I cooled it on the counter before refrigerating.
Also, I don't care for Oreo crusts (too sweet). i used 1 3/4 c. graham cracker crumbs mixed with 1/3 c. butter and 1/4 c. sugar, pressed into the bottom of the pan.
IMPORTANT!!! Use wax paper, sprayed w/ Pam in the bottom of your springform pan. BUTTER the sides of the pan. This will prevent sticking and cracks.
I refrigerated mine for 6 hours before slicing. No cracks, no breaks, perfect crust, perfect amount of browning on the edges, none in the center.
IT CAME OUT PERFECT!!!!! And the taste? Incredible!
