If you want to review the initial attempt at a cheesecake, go ahead and click here. Most of the steps (aside from the missing chocolate sauce) remained the same. Although, I did tweak the baking process just a tad. I didn't like all the cracks in the top of the cheesecake the last time around.

So, this time I lowered the oven rack one notch to give it a little more distance from the top heating elements. I also reduced the heat just a little earlier. I kept it at 500 degrees for the first 8 minutes (rather than 10) before turning it down to 200 for another 90 minutes. The result: Success! Check it out:
|Ahhhh. Now THAT'S more like it. No cracks!|
