  1. I use this recipe all the time and I LOVE IT. Plus its a big hit with my office! But mine doesn’t seem to stay as a solid. No matter how long I have it in the fridge the crust is always coming up and it just kinda of turns into a smoosh fest in a bowl instead cake on a plate. I don’t know how to make it stick together better. I follow your recipe to a T, so now what..?

    • For the crust, I really take my take smashing down the crust. I takes me well over 5 minutes to push it down into the pan. Sometimes I use the bottom of a flat glass to really press it down. As far as the filling. When you whip the heavy cream go a little longer making sure you have stiffer peaks. Then make sure you gently fold in the whipped cream. Do not stir, it will deflate and cause the filling not to set. Fold, not stir. I only use Philadelphia cream cheese”regular” not low fat. Try these tips and your cheesecake should be more successful. Thanks for visiting andicakes, I’m glad you like the recipe.
