My Notes: First off let me say this is a very easy good cheesecake. Now with the things I didn’t like, or would do differently. The broiling of the brown sugar, as you can see from my photos, there was some burnt spots. I don’t like that! The cheesecake needed to be placed lower and cooked for a longer time. At that height and time it did almost nothing and longer then that time and you get burnt spots. Live and learn!
Also it doesn’t last well. The sugar starts to pool in the bottom of the pan over night. Of course my solution to this is to just eat it all right away! After 2 days there was so much sugar syrup in the bottom that the crust was soggy and I ended up tossing it. It was very painful to me!!
