Oh my goodness!! This recipe is truly worthy of all the wonderful reviews. I made this for a dinner party last evening and everyone loved it!!! It was the most beautiful cheesecake I have ever made and SO SO SO delicious! So here are my helpful tips: First of all I made it exactly like the recipe calls for. No changes. I used the Nabisco Chocolate Wafers that are found beside the graham cracker crumbs in my grocery store. I don't have a food processor, so just put them in a ziplock bag and crused with rolling pin. The taste of these wafers is like an oreo without the cream. PERFECT for the crust. Had never used these before. They are great! After reading lots of the reviews, I decided to try a water bath for the first time. It worked beautifully and the cheesecake looked like something from a restaurant. Seriously. So just wrap your spring form pan with foil about half way up the sides to ensure no water gets in. When ready to bake your cheesecake, set your cake in a jellyroll pan and once you slide this into your oven, then carefully pour HOT water into the pan so that it comes up about an inch or so up the side of your springform pan. That's all there is to it. I baked mine for exactly 55 minutes and then turn oven OFF. Leaving oven door CLOSED, let the cheesecake sit in oven for one additional hour. TRUST ME....it worked beautifully. Remove from oven, remove foil, cool and refrigerate. WONDERFUL!!
