Never thought of a water bath. My latest version is very cracked. Philly cream cheese is on sale so I may try again using a water bath and at 225 for 70 mins. Yes I used a springform pan, no other way around it. I made a treat for the few gals I work around for happy shutdown. It still tastes good so they will be happy. But I got a tip to crack the oven door while baking? Anyone do the mini versions in muffin pans?

This is a great recipe. Its Simple, but very, very good. Try cooking it without the water bath it is much better. Cook the crust at 350 for about 10 min. let cool and add the batter.I spray the pan. Cook cake for 15 min. at 350, lower to 225 for about 70 min. Don’t open the door until finished. Turn off oven, run a thin knife around the cake between the pan, return to oven and let cool in oven till room temp. Chill overnight.

This is the first time I ever heard anyone say to let the cheesecake come to room temperature. I thought I was the only one who did that. There is nothing worse than ordering cheesecake at a restaurant and it comes ice cold.

I recently made my first cheesecake and while I was pleased, I'd definitely like to try it again with these directions. Hopefully it'll firm up better this time (gonna use the measurements I read in the comments.)
