Tips for making the BEST Cheesecake!

When baking a cheesecake it is essential to use room temperature ingredients.

The cheesecake filling can turn out lumpy if you thrown in cold ingredients. Using room temperature ingredients ensures that you can cream your ingredients properly.

Also be careful not to over whip or your cheesecake will develop air pockets that can give it a weird appearance.

Make sure you bake your cheesecake in a water bath.

Be sure to carefully follow the instructions for the water bath. It helps to ensure even baking and helps prevent cracking.

It might feel like a lot of extra work but it is totally worth the extra steps to get a perfectly baked cheesecake each and every time.
