I always chuckle at people who change the recipe and then brag about how much better their version is. Well I didn’t change anything, but I wish I would have listened to some of the other reviews. This tastes fine but it definitely doesn’t fit in a 9” pan, nor does it cook in the recommended time. Any part of this cheesecake that is above the rim of the springform pan falls off. If I would ever try this recipe again (I wouldn’t), I would for sure use a bigger springform pam. I cooked it for an hour longer than the recipe called, but I still don’t think it’s cooked properly.
I have been making this since it was first published, I found it In a taste of home recipe book at walmart in 2009, I've always followed the Instructions exactly and never had a problem, the only change i made was to the topping. I do 1 cup of flour and 1 cup of dark brown sugar 1/4 of butter cubed... i incorporate the butter in the mixture with my fingers until it creates a nice crumble then I add the walnuts last. Sprinkle it for the remaining 45 min and voila!!

I make this all the time, it always turns out perfect, I never cook it in the water. I bake it at 325 in my oven for about 1 hour or until set. It is always a hit. I make for a friend every year for his birthday. I also use 2tsps of pumpkin pie spice instead of the spices listed. Hope this helps.
This is my second time making this recipe. Tastes great, but agree with the other comments. Takes much longer to cook then recipe calls for. Total cook time more like 3 hours. Give yourself 5 hours total between prep, cooking and another 1 hour 10 minutes to cool before you can refrigerate.
I read all of the reviews and thought I would give it a try anyway. I ended up cooking it for almost 3 hours and it didn't get passed the consistency of pudding. The flavor was good but it was my friends birthday and this was what she asked for and I couldn't give it to her because it was more pumpkin pudding than cheesecake.

The cheesecake was good but the topping needs a bit of help. Most of the Streusel type toppings I have ever made have flour cut in with the butter, sugar and nuts. The topping on this cheesecake was VERY sweet, the butter just melted along with the sugar and made a pretty hard crust on the top of the cake. The butter also melted down and some of it oozed out the sides of the pan.I will make this again but I will add flour to the mixture so it is more of a crumble topping than sugar, nuts and butter.Another addition I did make I added about 1/4 Cup of diced crystallized ginger to the crust and I will do that again as well as adding some to the topping. Another possibility would be to make the crust with gingersnaps.
This cheese cake recipe was enought to make 24 cupcakes and a Cake. You do have to double the toppings and crust ingredients to do so. Big hit. Everybody loved it! This was my first cheese cake. I was given the nickname, "cheese cake master" at least until I make cupcakes again. ??
