I made this cake with my niece over the weekend. It was easy to follow and it had a good flavor, however here are two things about this recipe. 1st thing is the water evaporated out the pan before the cheesecake was done. When I cut and served the cake it was just fine and 2 you may want to double the cinnamon because i couldnt taste it all. besides that very worthy of a special occasion.

Made this recipe with my 13 year old daughter. A great recipe that covered many baking dynamics. We added 1 tsp lemon zest and a 1/2 tsp fresh lemon juice to the filling. Also, we added additional cinnamon and a 1/2 tsp of nutmeg to the crust. We found the crust recipe wasn't enough for the springform pan, and had to make another 1/2 crust recipe to cover the bottom and 1/2 up the side of the pan. Made this for a birthday party and received rave reviews. I will definitely make it again!

To be honest, this was the first from scratch desert I have ever made. I made 1.5 times the crust recipe, doubled the cinnamon, and added fresh nutmeg, due to what others have said. I also made a strawberry reduction for a topping, from another recipe on this site. This cheesecake was absolutely amazing to everyone I served it too, including myself. The one thing I will change next time, is slightly less butter, and nutmeg in the crust (it tasted a little like Christmas). To think prior to this I had never heard of a springform pan, or baking in a water bath, I could not believe how good it was.
