Amazing. I can't believe how great this cheesecake was. I will most definitely be making it again. YUM!
I also used a water bath as otheres suggested but still had some cracking on top. The very center was also a little too soft for us. However the taste was excellent and i will try this again on a lower heat for longer.
Fantastic! I followed the recipe to a tee and got a cheesecake that managed to be rich and surprisingly light all at once. I did not use a water bath either and had excellent results. One important thing I think made a huge improvement: I made this visiting my boyfriend in Germany and used Buko brand cream cheese, which is far better (IMO) than Philadelphia. Even though you can buy Philly in Germany, Buko has a much silkier texture that I think made it even better. I will most definitely make this again!
I also made this for Easter, and I will be making this all the time. I followed the advice of others and wrapped the crust and did the bath, however my crust did not turn out just right (I take the blame on this!). Now for the taste??? Oh wow, heavenly, dreamy...ah, perfection! The right amount of vanilla and lemon. I used vanilla bean paste (yum!). Presentation was lovely (no cracks). Taste was out of this world. I WILL be recommending this one. Thanks for sharing!
I have been making this for about a year now but just realized I had not rated it. This is the best cheesecake ever!!!! My family is kind of spoiled since I make whatever I can from scratch from bread to mac-n-cheese and this is the ONLY cheesecake they will let me make. My DH coworkers and my m-i-l's neighbor even make requests for it. I am making it for Easter dinners dessert this year. Thank you so much for such a wonderful recipe!
Loved it! This is my first time making cheesecake and cookie crust and everything turned out perfect and tasted wonderful. Will be making it again this weekend for my mom's b-day with cherry pie filling on top.
A lovely cheesecake. I have individual springform pans and was able to get 6 to freeze along with a small 6" that we ate over the weekend. I did have to double the crust recipe to accommodate all of the smaller cakes. We loved how light and fresh this was with just a hint of lemon. Also loved that the crust was not so sweet.
Perfect!!! First time making cheesecake, it was delicious!! Topped it with some cherries, my boyfriend ate a quarter of the thing himself in one sitting!
This was fantastic...made it for Valentine's Day, best we ever had. I did use a water bath. The top was perfect, no cracks.
This was absolutely the BEST!! Everyone that ate it...loved it! It taste restaurant quality and is easy to make! We used chocolate graham crumbs and garnished w/ fresh raspberry. ;)
