"This was my first attempt at making cheeseccake, and it turned out delicious! I actually only baked it for 35 minutes, then let it sit in the oven (off) for 15 minutes. It did crack, but that got covered with the toppings! I even used 1 reduced fat cream cheese pkg and 2 regular, and it turned out fabulous. Call me crazy for trying to reduce the calories in a cheesecake...? Not sure what I was thinking; I'm just glad it turned out for Thanksgiving!!"
