  2. In a large bowl, Beat cream cheese and sugar on low speed until smooth. Beat in heavy cream, sour cream and half-and-half. Add vanilla and beat in the eggs one at a time. Pour filling into prepared pan. Wrap bottom of the pan on aluminum foil to prevent water from seeping in.

I made two cheesecakes, one using Pam's crust recipe and the second using the traditional graham cracker crust recipe (Crumbs, sugar, melted butter). The cheesecake that had the traditional graham cracker crust recipe was the best. (Sorry Pam, I did not care for your crust).The cheesecake filling itself was awesome, it was very tastey. Very easy to make. I give this a thumbs up (except for the crust)

I chose this cheesecake recipe because it only calls for 3 pkgs. cream cheese, which I preferred over some of the other recipes that called for 4 or 5! pkgs. I wanted a classic cheesecake, and this fits the bill. Texture is very creamy. I did use another recipe for the crust (1 1/2 C graham cracker crumbs, 1/3 C melted butter, 1/4 C sugar - bake for 10 minutes). I've made other cheesecakes in the past, and have had problems with cracking or sinking in the middle. This one looks perfect, due to the water bath. I did have trouble with water leaking into the springform pan (I ended up making the crust twice because the first one was ruined), but will experiment a bit more with the technique to get it just right. I read online to use a plastic turkey oven bag instead of the foil. No leaks! I served the cheesecake with a seedless raspberry sauce I made from frozen berries and sugar. This made an excellent birthday cake for my BF.

This is the best tasting cheesecake. I added two tablespoons of Grand Marnier and grated some orange zest on the top. Also a sprinkle of allspice..
