How to Test For Doneness

Gently shake the pan. If the cheesecake is done, it will be set except for a small area in the centre that will be soft and jiggly. Do not insert a knife into the centre as this may cause the cheesecake to crack upon cooling.

Special Extra

Slice 2 cups fresh strawberries; arrange on top of chilled cheesecake. Brush with 2 Tbsp. melted strawberry jelly.
