It looks great.  I haven’t made a cheesecake yet. 

You should be excited..it is really an achievement

It would be a great dessert for Thanksgiving.

Thank you all for discovering and testing this great method!

I have a question for those who might know.  If you don’t have an insulated cookie sheet, can you do one of the following:

> Put two half-sheet jelly roll pans together (stacked normally) OR
> Put two half-sheet jelly roll pans together (facing each other so there’s a big space inside) OR
> Take a jelly roll pan and put an unrimmed cookie sheet on top of it (but it doesn’t cover the entire jelly roll pan

Thanks to anyone who knows if one of these is an equivalent!

Anne,

I’m not sure about the answers regarding the baking sheet substitution questions.  Kathleen and Darm tried the method without using the sheet and had good results also.  It sounds like it is worth a try!  Good luck!

Anne, I don’t know about the methods you mentioned. But I have heard that you can put a very wet towel in a deep pan, and put the cheesecake pan on top of the wet towel. I’ve heard this from a local pastry chef, though have not try this firsthand. Has anyone heard of this method? I wonder if you then have to bake the cheesecake at a lower temperature.
