A Masterpiece Cheesecake

This looked like a very simple cheesecake, which it is, but I think it is just too simple. I added vanilla and a tad bit of lemon juice and it still didn't have very much taste to it other than cream cheese. The crust was too thick for my liking and the filling just too bland. Also, I cooked it for 25 minutes instead of 20 because it was still too runny at 20 minutes. It did set up nicely, but even after being refrigerated for at least 3 hours, when I cut into it, the filling stuck terribly to my knife, so I know it needed to have been cooked a little longer. Just not worth it in my opinion, because there are other great tasting cheesecakes out there that are very little, if no more trouble. Sorry, no masterpiece for me.
