    This was the first cheesecake I ever made. I LOVE cheesecake and have eaten enough sub-par ones that I was too intimidated to make one myself. This one is easy, tastes amazing, and came out perfectly even though I doubled the recipe to make a full-size version. I just baked it a little longer. I've made it for gatherings 2 or 3 times and I've never brought a leftover piece home!
