    This sounds delicious!! I have a 10 inch pan, so I'll have to increase the ingredients a bit, but can't wait to try!!

    I had to bake my cheesecake about 12 minutes longer than recommended but that was probably just my oven . The cheesecake was delicious. . I will definitely be making it again.
