Recipe by Jane from Ohio

This from Kraft foods. I am posting it for safe keeping. I calls for peanuts but I think I will try it with pecans. The recipe gave a hint to avoid cracked cheesecakes is after adding the eggs, be careful not to overbeat the batter since this can cause the baked cheese to crack. I am counting refrigerator time in the cooking time. I also couldn't get them to accept 1 and 1/4 cup of sugar, divided. Where it states 0 sugar I put the 1-1/4 cup in brackets.
