Absolutely fantastic even if you have never made home-made cheesecake before- I was proposed to because of this recipe, but I am already married. I followed the recipe exactly except for a few additions from other reviewers (add tsp vanilla to batter, water bath on the rack below cheesecake, definitely bake a little over 2 hours, and let sit in oven for an hour after after you turn off oven). I would like to add one more change that I had to make. The first batter I made was lumpy (looked like I put cottage cheese in the batter) so I put the next in a food processor which smoothed the batter out and also thickened it up without adding air. I had even set the cream cheese out for a while to soften. I baked 2 cheesecakes at a time: one was lumpy batter, the other processed. The processed turned out much creamier and smoother. The lumpy remained lumpy, still tasted good but felt weird when eating.
