    In response to the Kitchen Chef, all cheesecakes need to be baked in a water bath to prevent cracking. The dry heat is what causes the cracking. I've been making all sorts of cheesecakes for over 35 years and not a one has cracked using this method.

    I made 2 of these cheesecakes and used a 1/2 of cup like everyone suggested and baked it for a few minutes longer & 1 i used baileys coffee creamer non alcoholic. Both of them cracked and look terrible. I know how to cook and bake so out of all these ratings my guess would be no one is mentioning the cracks in the cake. I just wonder if they taste as bad as they look. I'm going to make one more and see if the results get better.
