      If you love all cheesecakes (as i do) you will agree with the title that this is in fact the ULTIMATE. It took a lot of time and was somewhat tedious, but was well worth the work. It will rise somewhat during baking, but dont panic (as i did), it will settle and be possibly the best cheesecake that you have ever had!!!!!!!! I wish that I could give it more than five stars.

      I made this cheesecake for a party. Everyone loved it! Though during cooling a large crack formed; I topped it off with apricot and seedless blackberry preserves so the crack was not noticeable. I will make it again since it was delicious and not difficult to make.

      This cheesecake was absolutely delicious! However during cooling a large crack (more like a crevice) formed. I will still make this again, only next time I'll use a water bath during baking.
