Tip

Patience Makes Perfect -- To avoid cracks or falling, it is best to allow the cheesecake to slowly cool after it is done baking. This can be done by turning off the oven, cracking open the door, and allowing the cheesecake to cool inside the oven for several hours. Another option is removing the cheesecake and setting in on a wire rack on or near the still warm oven. Once cooling is complete, the cheesecake needs to be refrigerated for at least 8-24 hours – attempting to remove the springform pan too early will cause the cheesecake to fall apart.
