It seems like there are a lot of ingredients, but this delicious cheesecake is worth the effort. Enjoy!
Altered ingredient amounts. I followed another reviewers suggestion and made sure the cream cheese and eggs were at room tempature. I made the cheesecake 2 days ahead and it was perfect. I cooked it with a tin of water under the cake to prevent cracks. I put pecans on the top edge like the picture and made the pecan glaze as suggested. I didn't add the glaze until right before serving. I omited the vanilla and lemon extracts and the flavour was perfect. I entered the cheesecake into a baking contest and it won the grand overall prize. The cake is gorgeous! - 18 Jul 2008
I got RAVE reviews for this recipe with my in-laws. I made it twice, once dry and once in a water bath, and the waterbath made it really creamy, but dry was good too. - 18 Jul 2008
This was a very easy cheesecake that baked perfectly. Was very dense and luscious, everyone loved it. - 18 Jul 2008
