Okay - the reason for only 4 Stars is because of the misleading directions. READ others reviews! This is a 5 STAR recipe, but the baking directions are way off. I have never made a cheesecake before and wanted to make one for my daughters birthday. After heeding everyone's advice, I bake the cake for 3 hours and 15 minutes at 200 degrees, then turned off the oven, cracked the door and let the cake cool for 1 hour. I then placed it in the fridge for 12+ hours. It was AMAZING!! I did add cinnamon to the crust, a tsp. of vanilla, fresh lemon juice and zest to the batter. My son-in-law, who LOVES cheesecake, said that it tasted like a Cheesecake Factory cheesecake. I also baked in a 9 inch springform pan and it came out really thick but tasted light and fluffy! This is a keeper!
