I bought an expensive spring-form pan just because it looked cool & HAD to use it!!! As a first time baker, this recipe was very easy & very tasty. (A big hit with the boyfriend's family at Thanksgiving dinner!) Tip: 1 hr & 10min. bake time was a bit too long, my crust was burnt and the topping a bit dry. Next time I'll try 1 hr.

I made this cheesecake almost 20 years ago and lost the recipe. I periodically search for it, but have not been successful. I tend to compare all cheesecakes to my memory of this. Thank you for posting.
