So rich and creamy. Loved it!! Took someone's advise here and used Ginger Snaps for the crust and it worked out great.
Cheesecake was very creamy and flavorful! Used gingersnap cookie crumbs instead of graham crackers.
Great cheesecake. So different than I'm used to making, but surprisingly excellent. Like others have said it took longer to cook. Marilou... place the foil wrapped cake pan in a larger pan. Add water to the larger pan. I understand the confusion. The directions were a little confusing.
Don't understand the instructions for the water bath, very confusiong, two pans of 1"of water? not clear to me.
Made exactly as stated but substituted 2 1/2t. light rum for the extract. My cheesecake was cooked through at 50 minutes. I was disappointed at how shallow this cake was when I removed the sides of the pan so I whipped some heavy cream and piped it around the top edge to give it additional height. The cheesecake was silky, creamy & rich & disappeared quickly. I did have trouble with the crust sticking to the nonstick pan even though I had buttered it before putting the graham cracker mixture in.
This cheesecake is wonderful! I omitted the rum extract (simply because I didn't have any). I also used up some extra spice cookies instead of the graham cracker crust. But the filling was so delicious, I could eat it on any kind of crust! I did a steam bath instead of water bath so I didn't have to wrap the pan. Cooked it just over an hour, and it came out perfect! I plan on making this a yearly tradition. Next time I want to try it with homemade eggnog. Yum!
Made this for Christmas. It was delicious! Like other reviewers mentioned, the baking time was closer to 1 hour. I used a deep-dish pizza pan for the water bath and it turned out great. Helped with economizing oven space, too.
I know you love your cheesecake and this is one of the prettiest ones you?ve ever made! So festive for the holidays! Pinned! Cranberries AND eggnog?genius! i would like to share this on my personal blog http://oxter.in with my family friends & social Friends !!
This a very tasty cheesecake!! I enjoy eggnog, but can't always get away with it all, so having a recipe to use it in is great. Prepared this as written and it was perfect!
This recipe is so good! I made it on Thanksgiving for my family. They loved it so much they requested it again for Christmas! I did not use a water bath or double thickness of foil. I baked it a 350 for 15 minutes and then turned the oven down to 215 and finished baking for an hour and a half (until is was set). It turned out beautiful!
