This was an amazing recipe. It tastes so good! I didn't have a springform pan, but I used a pie plate and two custard dishes (for single servings!!) I will definitely use this recipe again.

EXCELENT, EXCELENT - Love every decedent mouthful. Served it with a cherry topping. First time I made a New York Cheesecake and this is the only one I will ever make. Thanx.

What more could you ask for? This is a rich and decadent cheesecake. After whipping the filling (and it FILLING the pan) we read online that the paddle should be used to mix the ingredients NOT the wire whisk. I guess it incorporates too much air. This probably contributed to the cake cracking, even though we used a water bath. Wonderful plain or with a topping. I opted for a blueberry sauce but would be great with any fruit or chocolate. I loved the crust, it never got soggy, even on the 3rd day. This is the king of cheesecakes and the lemon adds that special something! Thanks Bev!

Really great cheesecake! I usually use a waterbath recipe that doesn't rise when it's baking. Next time I will remove the upper rack so I won't have a hard time getting it out of the oven. I made this for Christmas dessert and it went fast! Thanks Bev

Best cheesecake I've ever made. I used someone else's suggestion and changed the servings to 7 and that made a nice size cake, not so thick. Also instead of using the graham cracker base, I made it a giant shortbread cookie. I cooked it over a water bath and didn't get a single crack. I'm actually about to make another one today it was so good!

Nice moist cheesecake that cooks up nice and high. A very impressive presentation! I topped it with fresh raspberries, the tartness was the perfect compliment.
