    This cheesecake is ok. It's not as sweet as a New York style cake. I do not have a springform pan, so I just used a 9' pie plate and it turned out fine. I also substitued half and half for the cream. If you are looking for a sweet cheesecake, this may not be the recipe for you! Served with fresh sliced strawberries to add a little more taste.
