  1. Billy, I’ve been experimenting with making a blueberry cheesecake. I’ve looked online and I think I might have found one recipe that was close to what I was looking for. I’m striving for a classic , baked cheesecake, but I’m adding a ton of fresh blueberry purée to the batter.

  2. I LOVE cheesecake! 🥰 I’ve probably been making cheesecake just as long as you have, Billy. I used to get Grand Canyon cracks in mine. I always make cheesecake in the evening. I discovered that if I open the oven door for a few minutes to let most of the heat out and then close it, allowing the cheesecake to cool in the hot oven all night, It doesn’t crack. I also skip the water bath. I’ve tried it both ways, and I’ve never been able to tell a difference. Vanilla wafers also make a fantastic crust! Great video as usual.

  3. Hi, I have a question about the cheesecake batter. Did you have any leftover filling/cheesecake batter? I want to know because I don’t want any leftover filling.

  4. I made this cheesecake twice and literally every single person I've let try it LOVES it! Makes me feel like a chef 😇
