Tips & Tricks

  • To prevent cracks on the surface of the cheesecake, place a pan of water on the bottom rack of the oven while baking.
  • Allow the cheesecake to cool gradually by leaving it in the turned-off oven with the door slightly ajar for about an hour before transferring it to the refrigerator.
  • For a decorative touch, sprinkle some ground cinnamon or powdered sugar on top of the cheesecake before serving.
