I've been making this cheesecake for years and I don't even have to look at the recipe any more. It is always requested at parties. The baking technique is adapted from Alton Brown's cheesecake recipe. Makes for a creamy cake that won't crack on the top

This was really yummy! I made exactly as recommended, and everyone at the Mother's Day BBQ was raving. The cooking directions do seem a little odd, but they worked, and resulted in a very creamy cheesecake. I will definitely make it again!
