  • Note:
  • I chill overnight for the best texture
  • since I don't use a crust baking times may alter
  • Sometimes I also bake in a waterbath to prevent cracks.
  • Also the heat is 550F in the recipe to produce a browned top crust. and then lowered to finsih cooking

    My husband loves cheesecake, but I rarely encourage him to have it. But, once in a while, maybe. This looks like the one for the New Year.

    Thanks for the recipe; love to make something new. Happy New Year, Midge dear.
