I baked this cheesecake for an hour and 15 minutes because it seemed too jiggly and I was concerned it would not firm up. I even checked to be sure my oven temp was correct (it was). In the end, the cheesecake was just right so I suggest that you check to see how it bakes in your oven. The photo above was taken when the cheesecake was still slightly warm (yeah, I couldn’t wait) and it was light and creamy. After refrigeration, the texture was slightly firmer.

With your outstanding photography; you could make the mud and gunk I scrape off my shoes after stomping through the woods look good enough to eat. I tell you, this looks outstanding and can tell it is rich and creamy; like soft ice cream.
I use to work part time for a friend in her bakery after trying to get back on my feet from a broken leg. She made only cheesecakes and I fell in love with them. I thinks its the only think I could never get enough of.
Try eating a slice frozen, it will blow you away.
Hope you have a blessed week.
