The Best Ever Cheesecake

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by KathyLRichey

After trying and trying different cheesecake recipes, I formulated one of my own. I do believe this is the perfect cheesecake. Very simple with a wonderful taste. You will need a 10 inch springform pan and to prepare a basic graham cracker crust beforehand.

June 16, 2012: Since stumbling across this recipe 7 years ago, I have not tried ANY other baked cheesecake. This is the BEST cheesecake ever! And, I do use it with your recipe http://www.food.com/recipe/graham-cracker-crust-116887 for the crust. Simply amazing! I am making it again per DH's request for Father's Day. Thank you!!!
April 17, 2005: What a cheesecake! And I do think this is the best baked plain cheesecake I have ever had. I saw the picture on the front page of Zaar, and knew I had to have it. Mine didnt turn out as brown as yours is, but it was browned a little and it was wonderful! Creamy and perfect in every way for me! Thanks so much!
