Cake was good but the crust was a bit burnt. I will make this cheesecake again but turn down the oven to 475 degrees.
This recipe was so easy to follow and is cheesy delicious. I assumed you leave the spring form on until completely cooled but that was logical. Everyone loves this and it is EASY.
My husband and I went to dinner at a neighbors house. I brought this for dessert, with a tub of sliced sweetened strawberries for a topper. The texture was fabulous and the directions were right on. Great recipe I will be making this again for sure. Thanks so much for posting Food Frenzy!
