Beautiful cheesecake, thank you for sharing this recipe, I will make this again. I made with half splenda and half sugar and it was fantastic, next I will try all splenda for my diabetic son who loves cheesecake!

This was my first attempt at making a cheesecake and it was much easier than I thought it would be. Has a rich thick texture and tastes wonderful. It did crack on top but did not affect the taste at all. Thanks for sharing.

I tried this and did not ust the water bath. It cracked on top but nothing serious. It also settled more in the middle than I thought it should, found out my oven is off 25 degrees. All the same it tasted great. The next one should be even better.

My cheesecake turned out awesome! It was my first attempt - very easy and delicious! I made a water bath by setting the pan on a cookie sheet and filling that with water. No cracks :) Mixed some strawberries w/ sugar and put them on top. Perfect!

This recipe was very good. It rose a lot in the oven, but went back down as it cooled. I did end up baking it for about 15 minutes longer, but I don't really know if that was necessary. I did not use a water bath, and mine did not crack at all. I also used neufchatel in mine in place of the cream cheese, and it was delicious. Thank you for sharing.

Got a big thumbs up from the whole family--delicious. I wasn't able to try it (gave sweets up for Lent). The bday boy was very pleased (he doesn't like cake, but will devour a cheesecake). Mine did crack, even with a water bath. I'll try spraying the pan next time. There was also way too much filling for my 9" springform and I was able to make an additional bar-style small square with the rest.

Great recipe, easy to follow! I cooked mine with a separate pan of water in the oven on another shelf. It seems to work just as well as a water bath without having to worry about foiling your pan? Only thing is mine was very browned on top? Nobody cared but I am wondering if anyone can tell me what I did wrong (or what I should do differently)?

I am not generally a fan of such a light and fluffy cheesecake, however my husband LOVED it. This recipe is very flexible. I have done this topped with berries, candied lemons and once even crushed oreos! You really need to do the water bath, and spray the sides of the pan with cooking spray so the cake does not crack.

Well we just ate the small ones that were left over. They were really lovely but feel maybe they would be better by adding a little more whipping cream. The taste was really authentic. Also maybe a little more lemon peel but that is just a personal choice. I shall use it again. Very nice thank you.

Great cheesecake. Made one Thanksgiving, Christmas and for my aunt to take to a work party. Everyone loved it. I also put in a picture.
