Treat your ingredients with care...

  • Cream cheese — Make sure it is softened to room temperature before using to ensure a smooth and creamy texture.
  • Eggs — Use room temperature eggs to prevent the cheesecake from cracking.
  • Heavy cream — Do not overmix the heavy cream, as this can cause the cheesecake to become too dense.

Tips & Tricks

  • To prevent cracks, do not overmix the batter and avoid opening the oven door during baking.
  • Let the cheesecake cool to room temperature before chilling in the refrigerator.
  • Serve with fresh berries or a drizzle of caramel sauce for an extra indulgent treat.
