375 oven for 45 to 50 minutes for 8 inch pan or 35 to 40 minutes for 9 inch
pan, or till center appears nearly set when shaken gently. Cool in the pan
on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Use a sharp, thin bladed knife to loosen the
crust from the sides of the pan; cool for 30 minutes more. Remove the sides
of the pan. Cool cheesecake completely. Cover and chill at least 4 hours
