      Hi there, we just added the link to the crust recipe. Enjoy!! This one's a real treat!

    I just finished baking your Cheesecake recipe and I would like to know the size Springform pan you used.I used a 10” and feel the cheesecake looks way too flat and possibly over baked. Hopefully the taste will be great and the texture hasn’t suffered. Taking it to an event and will find out in several hours. Thank you!

      Hi Kim! We used a 9" Springform pan. Hope everyone loved the cheesecake!
