  1. This looks and smells delicious, as mine is still in the oven, but I’ve had to extend the cooking time at 250 from 40 minutes (as stated above) to 1 hr. 20 min. I cook it until the middle of the cheesecake doesn’t jiggle anymore and a butter knife, when inserted in the middle, comes out nearly clean.
