TWD: Tall and Creamy Cheesecake

Delicious. Creamy. Luxurious.

Yes this cheesecake is a winner, with or without topping! I stuck with the recipe on this one. I have never baked in a water bath before, so I thought I had better just stick with the directions. I am very pleased with the results, I just wish I had more time to post and blog about this. I even had more pictures and don’t know where they went. :-P I’ve been working so much that squeezing these in is challenging to say the least!

    I liked the cheesecake too, glad you got to fit it in as well. Tight Squeeze, huh? Always something else to do? Like we don’t have enough already…. :-)
