This was the BEST, and might I say EASIEST cheesecake I've ever made OR eaten. I didn't bother with the anti-cracking maneuver, and alas it cracked (for those of you who don't want it to crack and are thinking about skipping this step), but it wasn't a big deal - it was a rushed project for my husband's wetdown (a "promotion" party in the USMC)... but though it cracked like the grand canyon, it tasted amazing, the texture was perfect, and i whipped it up in less than 15 minutes, and it baked perfectly in 1 hour. Thank you, Juenessa! My mother, who came down for the celebration and who has "never been a fan of cheesecake," absolutely loved it. Even called it divine. I hope everyone searching for a perfect, pure-ingredient, easy cheesecake... please choose this one!! You will be extremely happy... cracked cheesecake or not :)

My husband requested a thick, deli-style cheesecake for xmas dessert and this one was great. He said it was his favorite "present" this holiday.
