This might be a 5 star cheesecake for those that really know how to do them right. Mine turned out pretty well, considering it was one of my first. It was a bit heavy and dense, but maybe that's from my technique? I followed the instructions pretty closely, but I used the chocolate cookie crumbs from one premade crust, with some butter, pressed into the bottom of the pan. I suggest using 2 premade crusts - 1 is not nearly enough to cover the bottom, and it would have been nicer to have the crust go up the side a bit. Use a good amount of butter in the bottom of the pan and up the sides! I also baked it in a water bath (pretty easy! follow the instructions on this site) and it turned out without a crack. All in all, a good recipe, especially if you really know how to do a cheesecake!
