      Made 3 changes for the recipe: Increase crust to 2 cups ginger cookie crumbs, 2 Tablespoons sugar and 7 Tablespoons butter. I LOVE crust!!! Also added 1 Tablespoon of corn starch. I'd read it helps prevent cracks and it really worked! Finally I baked it at 325, for about 10 minutes longer. Also to prevent cracks.

      BUT I always get asked for the recipe and people always request me to bake this. In fact, I have one in the oven right now!!!!

      I made this after trying some superb and expensilve cheesecake and, trying it that night, it just didn't measure up. Dh said he liked it, but I decided to never make cheesecake again.
      I had heard, however, that cheesecake gets better as it "ages" so, I decided to try a bit the next day. I was amazed at the improvement! And then it was even better the next day, and even better the day after that! And then, alas, it was no more.
      It was SOOO good. I mean, perfect. One of my favorite desserts ever and yet so nice and rich that I had the willpower to not just gobble the whole thing down. And now, after a suitable interval has passed, I have found a reason to make another. (DH reminded me to make at least a day ahead)
      I missed the directions on the water bath somehow, and I do not have a springform pan, so I just baked it in an 8x8 square casserole dish and it still turned out great.

      I followed the instructions, which did not instruct to wrap foil or do anything other than to place cheesecake pan straight into water. It was my first time so next time I will not place in water. Disaster and waste of money.
