insider cheesecake tricks??

edinaeats | | Jan 23, 2005 05:06 PM

I am fairly new to baking- as sweets are not my thing- and am trying to perfect a great cheesecake that I can easily whip together- and change the flavor on a whim.

My questions:

If baking it in a bath essential?

How do you get the top to NOT crack and brown too much?

Recipes vary greatly- how many eggs does your favorite call for?
