Everyone loved it. However, The recipe doesn't give you a real clear idea of how a cheesecake should be made. If you click on "advice" on allrecipes main page and then go to "baking" and then under "articles" click on "sublime cheesecakes" there is so much great information. It tells you never to use cream cheese unless it's at room temp. And when you're done baking the cheesecake turn off the oven and let it sit for an hour in the oven. Some people had problems with cooking times but if you do this your cheesecake will be done just right. Lastly, it tells you how to bake it with a water bath. All of this advice really does lead to a great cheesecake with no cracking for whatever recipe you decide to use.


I've made this cheesecake twice. The first time I followed the instructions exactly, and I had a few problems. The middle was undercooked, the crust was a little soggy and lacked flavor, and the filling was a little bland. So, I made a bunch of changes for my second try. I cooked it about 10 minutes longer. I used a gingersnap crust (from this site's Pumpkin Cheesecake with Gingersnap Crust recipe). I added a lot more cinnamon and nutmeg, and I also added about 1 12 tsp of cloves and 14 tsp of ginger. Also, I only made half the amount of sour cream topping. It turned out SO much better the second time. It had a really great flavor (the crust made a huge difference), and the consistency was great. People raved about it. I would definitely make it again and again with these alterations.


I was worried after baking for 60 minutes that it wasn't cooking all the way through despite cracking around the edges. I proceeded with the sour cream topping anyways and returned it to the oven for 5 min. per the directions. I discovered that if you let it cool at room temperature for an hour or so, it will continue to set. It's best not to immediately transfer it to the fridge to cool. I tested it with a knife in the middle and it came out clean! Whew!
