  1. The cheesecake was way too thin, dry and not really much taste. The crust was too crumbly. I had made this for mothers day and thank goodness I taste tested this the morning of my dinner. I had to scrap the whole thing and make something else!
  2. The bake temp is wayt oo high for a cheesecake
