Marble Cheese Cake

My oldest daughter is practicing cooking skills this year as a school elective. We are journeying through the New Better Homes and Gardens cookbook, studying the nutrition information, the kitchen hints, and choosing a few recipes from each section. Today it was marble cheesecake, and it turned out beautifully! My cheesecakes always tasted good, but had ugly cracks on top UNTIL I learned to put a pan of water in the oven while the cheesecake is baking. Because cheesecake is a company dessert, the appearance is important and this hint has so far been 100% effective.

Do you like cheesecake? I'm glad this one isn't for company!

Cheesecake is one of my weaknesses. Doesn't matter the flavor. Thanks for sharing the secret to a smooth top, mine always crack, too.
