  • Size-Wise: Sweets can add enjoyment to a balanced diet, but remember to keep an eye on portions.
  • How to Easily Serve Cheesecake: Line empty pan with foil before using to prepare cheesecake, allowing ends of foil to extend over sides of pan. Use foil handles to lift chilled cheesecake from pan before cutting to serve.
  • How to Bake in Springform Pan: Prepare and bake cheesecake as directed, substituting a 9-inch springform pan for the 13x9-inch pan and increasing the baking time to 1 hour 10 min. or until center is almost set. Run knife or metal spatula around rim of pan to loosen cake; cool before removing rim. (Note: If using a dark nonstick springform pan, reduce oven temperature to 325 degrees F.)

I made this cheesecake many times before and loved it, although I like the graham cracker crust better. A helpful hint my grandma taught me, while cheesecake is baking, keep a bread loaf dish filled with water in the over with the cake. ( Moist heat) My cakes never crack.

This is a very good cheesecake that everyone really enjoyed! Personally, I would give this 4 stars because I prefer my Grandmom's recipes for cheesecakes, but I cannot give this recipe less than 5 stars because of how well it was received. All my guests really loved it. This is not a very sweet cheesecake, you really get to appreciate the cream cheese! The crust is thin, so if you would like a thicker crust, use about 5-7 more Oreos, and add another tablespoon of butter. I use the bottom of my 1 cup measuring cup to press the crust in the pan, works like a charm. I chose this recipe because I needed a quick dessert to make late at night to serve the next day, and I didn't feel like using a springform, or any complicated recipe for cheesecake. This came together very well, I baked this for exactly 40 minutes and it was perfect. Also, if you really want a nice layer of fruit topping to thoroughly cover the top, you need more than a 21 ounce can. I topped half with cherry and half with strawberry topping, both are very good. One tip, when making cheesecakes I always mix the flour and sugar together separately before mixing with the cream cheese and other ingredients. This prevents any lumps from the flour, and all the ingredients blend very well. I did get a few cracks along the sides but I didn't use a water bath, and the fruit topping took care of that problem. Thanks for posting, I will definitely use this again :)


The BEST New York Cheesecake I have ever made!! So simple, and easy to make. I loved the idea of the foiled lined 9 by 13. Worked perfectly! Followed the directions exactly, no complaints! Several people have asked for the recipe. I have also tried it with graham cracker crust, equally delicious.
