I have made cheesecakes many times before, but I believe this was the best tasting one yet! Got raves from everyone who had a piece and I will definitely put this at the top of my cheesecake recipe list!

I made this for a romantic dinner date for my husband and I and he absolutely loved the cheesecake. It did crack like some of you were saying. Next time I'll have to try the foil/water trick.

Absolutely the BEST cheesecake recipe ever! Victoria Elaine, your tip on wrapping the pan in foil and putting it in some water was amazing. You are right -- no cracks at all!! Yippee!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 24, 2013

I made this for Easter this year. I make a cheesecake nearly every holiday & usually try a different recipe every time. This is - hands down - the BEST cheesecake I've ever made! So creamy & yummy! The only change I made is that I wrapped the pan tightly in foil & baked it in a pan with about 1" of water. I've found this method of baking helps keep the cheesecake from cracking.
