Here are some more tips to help your cheesecake turn out just right:
- For optimal blending, make sure all your ingredients are at room temperature.
- Spray the bottom and sides of your springform pan with nonstick cooking spray before adding the crumb crust. If you want to remove the cheesecake from the base for serving, cut a sheet of parchment paper to fit.
- To get pretty slices, use a large, sharp chef’s knife. Slice by cutting it straight through to the bottom – don’t use a sawing motion. Rinse the knife off in hot water, dry, then cut another slice. Another great cutting idea – use unwaxed dental floss. Hold the ends of a long piece in both hands, then bring the floss straight down through the cheesecake.
