      Let me start by saying that this was my first attempt at making cheesecake--however, I did follow the directions exactly. The results were not good. After 60 minutes of baking the center was still wobbly but it was pretty brown on top so I went ahead and took it out of the oven. It just had the texture and flavor of ricotta cheese. It was also very wet all the way through and the crust was soggy.
