3. Pour mixture into crust.
4.  Bake the cheesecake in a water bath to keep the oven moisture high and the heat distributed evenly. Make sure you don’t overheat the cheesecake because it could burn.  (A water bath is when you put water in a large pan and then set a smaller baking pan inside it. See Picture.)

Putting on the Finishing Touches

Tips: 

For healthier eating, you can substitute Ricotta for the cream cheese. Sometimes I add lingo berry preserves for variety.

I’ve heard that you are a good cook if your cheesecake does not crack. Let me know how yours turned out in the comments!
