My first cheesecake, turned out beautiful. No cracks I used 1 pkg. of oreo cookies for the crust, twisted them apart and scraped the frosting (chocolate) saved that to ice graham crackers (childhood thing) added 2 Tab of cocoa powder with the mini chocolate chips to make more chocolaty. Sprinkled remainder of chips on top before baking. Was very nervous about the water bath, So I followed another reader and placed a 9x13 pan of water on the rack below the cheesecake, still nervous so I placed a jelly roll pan under the cheesecake and placed just enough water in that pan to come just up to the bottom of cheesecake. After baking and then turning off the oven left it in the oven for two hours. Let it finish cooling on the counter. Then to the freezer, next morning took it out of the pan, sliced it wrapped each piece in plastic wrap and back to the freezer.
With only 2 of us, this way keeps us from eating the whole thing. And it freezes well, my husband actually likes to eat it frozen!
