      This recipe is perfection! I've gotten nothing but raving reviews about how good it is. My MIL told me I'm not allowed to show up at gatherings without it anymore. :-P There were no cracks, burnt areas, or sinkholes. It was incredibly moist and perfect. The only issue I'm having is getting the bottom to not leak during the water bath. It kinda makes the crust a little soggy but it's not noticeable. When I bring this to family gatherings, there's never a crumb left. :-)

      I baked it for the time specified and the top burnt. It was still wobbly when I took it out so I am hoping it's still okay :/

      Really,Really good!! Made it exactly the way the recipe said and it was perfect! It tastes very close to the Cheesecake Factory's. It also turned out flawless, no cracks, no sinkholes; the most beautiful cheesecake I have ever made..I think it was the waterbath that did it,I will definitely be baking all my cheesecakes in a waterbath from now on. Definitely a keeper, the family came back for seconds!
