@ coloradopeak: I also live in Colorado, here are some thing that work for me. I use chocolate gramcrakers from King Soopers (cheaper and easier to find). I place my 9 inch springform pan in a 10 inch cake pan (instead of foil around the bottom of springform pan) then place in water bath. When the cheesecake timer goes off I turn off oven and leave cheesecake in oven for a couple of hours, it seams to set better. I hope theese help.

I never can find choc graham crackers so I asked a baker at whole foods and she told me to use choc. oreo cookies. Just put the in a food processor and add a couple tbls of melted butter and 3 tbls of sugar. Instead of baking I put it in the frig for 10 minutes to harden and the taste is perfect.

I made this recipe for a going away party and everyone loved it. I do have a problem with recipes that you have to bake in a water bath. My first problem is that I cook it for over 75 minutes and it still seems too soft or mushy to me; also, even though I put foil around the pan it still seems to wet the crust. I live in Colorado and wonder if it has anything to do with the altitude? Can anyone help me solve my problem?

The first time I made this cheesecake I knew it was the one! The only troubles I have with it are finding the chocolate wafers/cookies for the crust. I am making it again today only using gram cracker crust and Milky Way because I have an aunt that really wants to try it but she has peanut allergies. I'm sure it will still taste just a good!
