    I was wondering if I could make this an Oreo Cheesecake instead of a blood orange cheesecake? Seems like I could fold in crushed Oreo's before pouring into the spring form pan and sprinkle crushed Oreo's on top.

    This cake is fabulous. I've made it a dozen times or more and it is perfect every time. Critical not to overmix the filling (after adding each egg) and absolutely must be baked in a water bath. Cracking cheesecakes sometimes come from skipping this process. Also, over door cracked open and oven off for last hour also critical. Don't give up, try it again, it is so worth it.

    regarding pianoman37's post: your description sounds like you turned the oven off & left the door closed for an hour where you should have turned the oven off & left the door ajar for an hour. I don't know if this caused your problem, but possibly. My door is ajar right now & I hope I have better luck than you did b/c this is a time consuming recipe. But I know it will be worth it if it works.

    I make this all the time and it turns out perfect. I want to make mini ones and don't know how long to cook them. Does anyone know or have an educated guess?

    When I'm done baking my cheese cakes I crack the oven with a wooden spoon and allow it to cool in the oven. After it cools (an hour or two) I let it sit at room temp before putting it in the fridge.

    I love the cheesecake, but never seem to be able to get it right. Mine seems very wobbly after the suggested cook time and my top gets dark. I have lowered the rack in the oven and covered the top with foil part way through. I am always concerned it is not done so bake longer than suggested. Any recommendations?
