The best and perfect cheesecake


I had the best results using Philadelphia cream cheese. Make sure your cream cheese doesn’t contain emulsifiers as I find this can cause the cheesecake to curdle as it bakes.
The cheesecake can be served at room temperature or cold out of the fridge. Try both to find your preference.
