How to Make Idiot Proof Cheesecake


  • 1Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour 10" spring form pan. I use a 9" and it works just fine.
  • 2Mix all ingredients together one at a time untill they are all mixed well. Pour in to spring form pan. I place the pan on a cookie sheet for easy handling.
  • 3Bake for 1 hour. After the hour is done, turn off oven and DO NOT OPEN THE OVEN FOR 2 MORE HOURS. Let the cheesecake sit in the oven while the oven cools. After the 2 additional hours remove cheesecake and chill for 3 to 4 hours.
  • 4Once chilled remove from pan and invirt onto a serving dish and decorate as desired. There will be a crack in the top. This is normal. I have added crukshed up Oreo's into the batter before baking and it turnes out great.
