    Simply scrumptious! Don't try to hurry the necessary time for the cheese cake to set. I recommend overnight. EnJoy!

    I've been making this cheesecake since it came out in Martha Stewart Living in, I think, 1999. Everyone loves and people always ask for the recipe.

    This was soo delicious its not even funny! I changed it up a tad by swirling some of the chocolate glaze inside of the cheesecake and then baked it...then on top...came out great!!

    The verdict is out on this one. I don't know if it was may new springform, but the butter leaked out of the bottom of the pan, leaving a smoky messs in my house...which made the cheesecake taste not so good. I should have followed my insticnt by wrapping the pan in foil.

    I am not sure if it needs to bake 1 hour and 45 mins or approx. 1 hour or 45mins. I just took it out of the oven at 1 hour! Looks done to me? Anyone know?

    Thank you so much. I really appreciate all your effort in typing this up. I am making it for my sister's welcome new baby party (the baby is 2 weeks old) and is going to meet his grandma's friends for the first time. Thanks again!

    To serve, place chocolate, remaining 2 tablespoons of butter, and cream in the top of a double boiler or a heat proof bowl set over a pan of gently simmering water. Sir occasionally until melted. Pour chocolate glaze over cheesecake, spread into a circle, leaving a n n n n inch border. Chill just until chocolate has set. About 10 minutes.

    Bake cheesecake until sides have set but center appears soft, about 1 hour and 45 minutes. Transfer pan to wire rack to cool. Run a paring knife around the outside of the crust, loosening it from pan. When cool, cover tightly with plastic; let set at least 4 hours or overnight.

    Drizzle eggs, one at a time, stopping occasionally to scrape down bowl. Beat in south cream and sale. Pour batter into crust.
