"You won't find a better cheesecake out there and there is no need to bake this cheesecake in a water bath, it does however need a 1 hour sitting time in the oven after baking,feel free to use a graham cracker crust in place of the chocolate, I prefer the chocolate, plan ahead there is an overnight chilling time, a good cheesecake needs time to ripen.
