Check your ingredients to make sure they all truly Gluten Free if you are sensitive. This is the only cheesecake recipe I've found that doesn't call for a starch such as flour or cornstarch in the batter. I make a nut crust so it can be GF. You can use a combination of other nuts if you prefer. If you don't care about it being GF, you can use a traditional graham cracker crust. This cake must CHILL OVERNIGHT before serving. NOTE : When fitting the bottom into the springform pan, make sure the "dished" side is down and the flat side is up. This will make it easier to slide the cake from the pan to the serving plate.
