Who does not love a good cheesecake? OK – maybe there are some out there that do not, and I have to feel a little sorry for them. I have always loved a good cheesecake, and for many years my cheesecake consisted of the cream cheese and condensed milk refrigerator version, with canned cherries on top. I actually thought this was a cheesecake! I do still love this version, and it is great when you are in a rush, but this is nothing in comparison to the “real deal.”
While attending the University of Texas, some friends and I began experimenting with making cheesecakes. They always seemed to come out runny, cracked. or just wrong. It was not until my senior year there that I actually found the secret to a wonderful cheesecake, and realized that maybe all those other attempts were good cheesecakes, but the preparation and cooking methods were all wrong. So here is my recipe, and with a little help from watching shows like Alton Brown’s Good Eats, I found the perfect way to make it and cook it so that it came out wonderful!
