"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!"
"So perfect for Thanksgiving. Easy too. My youngest son's girlfried did most of the work. I just supervised. Will make again, and again, and again. Don't change anything. If you're using quality spices (not grocery store garbage) the measurements are just right."
"Wonderful! Great pumpkin flavor. I did reduce the sugar in the cream cheese mixture to 1 1/2 cups and it was perfect. I increased the cloves to 1/2 teaspoon to mirror the flavor of my favorite pumpkin pie recipe. I filled my 10-inch springform VERY full with the cream cheese mixture and still had enough left to fill 3 ramekins. I baked it for one hour at 350Â°F in the water bath then turned off the oven and left it in the oven until it cooled. And the result was a perfectly smooth, firm cheesecake...no cracks. Thank you for posting this wonderful recipe."
"This was absolutly delicious!!! Nothing but great things were said about it from the entire family on thanksgiving. Didn't have to alter a thing. Thank You!!"
