“This is sooooo delicious! One of the best cheesecakes I've ever made.Very creamy and simply delectable! It's refreshingly different from regular cheesecakes. You will impress with this one! *Helpful hints. Springform pans tend to leak, so cover the bottom of the pan with aluminum foil. Make sure ALL INGEDIENTS are at ROOM TEMPERATURE. Also do not over mix, it will create alot of air in the batter and will crack it when its cooling.”
