    Followed written directions to a tea. Worked perfectly looked beautiful. I was disappointed in the taste, too bland.

      Mary, I advise, try it again! I felt I went a little light on the lemon zest due to zesting and I usually will screw up a recipe every time. I probably added a bit more vanilla than a teaspoon as well ( you know how when pouring a liquid it is easy to over pour?) My cake was awesomely delicious and I am wishing I hadn't let everyone take the leftovers.

    I am not real big on "perfect" measuring but I'm sure I was close and the cake was PERFECT! Even my very picky daughter loved it enough to take 3 pieces home with her (she NEVER does that). Thank you so much, I initially doubted I would use this recipe just because it didn't call for heavy cream, which I had heard is one of the major ingredients in a NY cheesecake and the site I found it on gave it a less than 3 star rating (probably rated by cooking rookies). But after watching the video, I decided to use this one and boy am I glad I let the "little diner down the road" story change my mind. I will make this regularly now (at least as regularly as I dare health and weight wise). For those wondering, it is as easy as the video shows. I am an experienced cook, but I normally stink when it comes to the baking, but everyone at the table (especially the two dads it was made for) loved it!

    I have made this recipe several times and I love, love, love, the results. Simple and sublime. I have also made the same filling with a gluten free oatmeal crust and it is delicious that way as well. Please don't skip the water bath.

    Today may 5th is the second time making this cheesecake I followed the directions to the tee last time but my cheesecake burnt on top to high of oven so this time I lowered the degrees of it and it turned out perfect but I didn't do the water bath thing and it still turned out awesome....

    I've made this a few times. I don't put mine in a water bath, I put it over a pan of water. Use 9" springform. When adding eggs, I don't beat them, I fold in so I don't add too much air (cracks). Baking this hot? Most cheesecakes say bake at 300 for 1 hour. 375 is a hot oven for cheesecake, so I modify temp during baking time and and bake less time, cooler oven (325-350). I leave it in the oven for another hour to cool down. Fewer cracks. REFRIGERATE 8 before serving.

      Great tip on lowering the temperature to 350 and letting the cake cool in the oven. Beautiful top -- lightly browned at edges with no cracks. First time in 45 years of making cheesecake.

    The taste is good. I cooked this for 90 minutes and it wasn't done. The recipe calls for 60 minutes. Thank you MS.com for posting an incorrect recipe.

      I have made this cheesecake many times. It is very good. Remember it comes out loose it hardens.

    The directions for mixing did not match the demonstration ie directions state 1 egg at a time, Lucinda put them all in at once; it calls for a stand mixer, she specifically mentions using a hand mixer.

    I made this for my first Christmas dinner and it was a hit! Make sure your pan is water proof or you will have to cook longer than directed and then refrigerate longer then instructed. All in all it turned out excellent!

    OMG!!! This is THE most delicious cheesecake ever!!! I thought my recipe for New York Cheesecake was legend. Lucilla Scalla Quinn's version wins the day with my crew. This will be our new special dessert.
