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.

I made this for my sister in law on her birthday and it was a huge hit!! Thick, creamy and rich. The only things I did differently were that I used regular grahm crackers for the crust, I baked it in a water bath, and I let it sit in the oven with the heat turned off for an hour to finish setting up and it turned out perfect! thank you for this great recipe!!
