This was the first cheesecake I've ever made, and it was amazing! I made a graham cracker and hazelnut crust, and followed another reviewer's suggestion to sprinkle white chocolate chips over the bottom before adding the filling. Placing a pan of water under the cake did just the trick of keeping the environment inside the oven moist enough to prevent cracks in the cake, and chilling the cake overnight made it exceptionally easy to remove it from the spring form pan. Instead of brandy, I used Godiva White Chocolate Liqueur for the sauce and chilled it (per another review) before spooning it over the chilled cake. I made the leftover sauce available in case anyone wanted more, but in retrospect I should have drizzled the sauce over the cake instead of spooning or pouring it. Thanks for the recipe and to all the reviewers for the tips. I have to admit that I was pretty darn proud of myself when it was finished!
