    Not only would I make this again, but I have -- time and time again. This is the perfect cheesecake recipe, and it's super easy to make. I've also made a salted caramel to go on top and a dark chocolate ganache, and when I made the cheesecake without the lemon zest/juice, it was great.

    The best cheesecake ever!! I made this cheesecake for the 1st time and it was absolutely DELICIOUS!!! Just a note: Once you put the cheesecake in the oven do not open the oven door! The cheesecake will crack on top! Happy Baking!
