EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

For a party-perfect cheesecake without cracks, try baking in a water bath. Place the filled springform pan in a large roasting pan and pour enough boiling water into roasting pan to come halfway up sides of springform pan. Bake as directed.

You can also prepare this cheesecake with butterscotch or hot fudge topping.
