Top Review by Cranberry

This was my first attempt at a baked cheesecake. I substituted light cream cheese and baked it in the water bath. I also left it in the oven for an hour after baking with the heat turned off as the previous reviewer suggests. It turned out PERFECT (made it for a birthday party and everyone raved) and was so creamy and delicious. Thanks for a great recipe.
