    This has become a regular go-to recipe for me whenever a special occasion demands cheesecake! Even friends who aren't usually fans of cheesecake have loved this. Very easy to make, and so incredibly delicious!!

    I made this a couple days ago for easter and it turned out PERFECT! It looked really good and tasted even better. I cooked it for about 75 mins, it was enough for me, I covered it up and left it in there to cook untill the center was almost firm. I also used 2 ounces less of cream cheese and it still was just the right amount. I put less sugar, Martha always has huge doses of it. When I tried out the batter I could hardly taste any of the spices, so I added some more. Just an awesome cake!

    Just made this and it turned out pretty well. I didn't bake it in the water like the recipe said and it still turned out okay. doesn't look to pretty but i'm sure it tastes great!

    I made this for Easter like everyone else, also subbed 1/3 less fat cream cheese. It was insanely delicious and I've already received a request for a repeat bake!

    I also made it for Easter and everyone loved it! The crust was great and the overall flavor was fantastic. I subbed 1/3 less fat cream cheese for 3 of the packages so I thought that might affect it a little, but not at all and nobody could tell! I had trouble cutting it as well, but otherwise it was perfect!

    I just made this for Easter and it was a HUGE hit. Not easy to cut, but I think I am missing some tip with that. Will make every year now!
