This cheesecake is stunningly good. I seriously think that it is the best thing I have ever made. Ever. I only gave 4 stars simply because of the cooking time issues. For those just finding this recipe, I am condensing the adjustments I obtained from reading a thousand pages of reviews so you don't have to dig, I truly believe they made all the difference in the world. The last two are optional, but the cooking time and temp are absolutely essential. My cake was wonderfully creamy, perfectly cooked, and not a crack in sight. Make. This. Cake.
1. Thanks to all of those who suggested this, I believe this made all the difference. Place a water bath on the lower rack, and place the cake into cold oven, set to 200 degrees, and bake for 3 hours and 10 mins. Turn the oven off, and leave the cake to cool for a couple of hours. Place in the fridge at least overnight.
2. Add 2 tsps. of good vanilla.
3. I also added the zest and juice of half a Meijer lemon, it totally wakes up the cream cheese.
