This cheesecake was absolutely delicious!! The caramel layer was not hard, as some "turtle" type cheesecakes get, I followed the recipe exactly, making sure the ingredients were at room temperature. I baked in a 325 oven for exactly 50 mins. with a 9" cake pan full of hot, boiled water on the oven rack beneath the rack the cheesecake was on. The cheesecake had a 2-3" wobbly circle, in the centre at this point. I turned my oven off, cracked the door open and left it for a good 4-5 hours until it was completely cool. It set up beautifully, with NO cracks. I then transferred it to the fridge, and decorated it the next day with sweetened whipped cream that I had added some whip cream stabilizer to. I also sprinkled the piped cream with some chopped pecans, and added a cherry on top of each dollop of cream. To cut, I ran hot water on the knife, and wiped it off between each cut. It cut beautifully!! I served it with some Smucker's caramel sauce. Delish!! My sil absolutely loved it!! (i made it for her 40th b-day)
