This has been my go to Cheesecake recipe for 8 years.As the name implies it has a velvety, airy texture and quality.I have made this with a raspberry coulis that i thickened with cornstarch (or you could use canned pie filling strained of seeds)and swirled it throughout the cheesecake batter, Lemon curd is also nice swirled in the batter.**Also, i have made this using a variety of cookie crust; prebake crust 10-12 mins, cool slightly before adding filling and bake as directed only greasing sides of pan.
