about the recipe

Ultimate Cheesecake

Tip One: Be sure to read this article for ALL my tips on how to prepare a water bath in order to bake up a perfect smooth cheesecake without any cracks. Don’t skip this step, it makes a huge difference!

Tip Two: Use full fat bricks of name brand cream cheese that have been completely and totally softened to room temperature for a rich and silky smooth cheesecake.

Tip Three: Get creative with the cheesecake topping! You can use the traditional raspberry sauce or have fun with ganache, caramel, butterscotch, whipped cream, or fruit!
