Whew, cheesecake is done and in the fridge per instructions. I don't think DH and I can wait until tomorrow to try a piece. It did crack but for my 1st one, I think it went ok. Definitely learned a couple lessons along the way so next time the process will be easier. 1. Instead of whacking chocolate cookies with a rolling pin 1,389 times, remember I DO have a food processer 2. Be sure eggs are room temp, not straight from the coop that is 48 degrees 3. Don't blow the butter up in the microwave when trying to melt it 4. Don't taste the batter, it has raw eggs in it I promise to take a photo when we get it out. (but it looks delicious)!
