Run knife around the edge of the pan to loosen the cake and cool completely. Refrigerate 4 hours. Remove side from pan before cutting to serve. * When baking the cheesecake, use a water bath. Fill a roasting pan with hot water and place it on the bottom rack of the oven below the cheesecake. This helps it bake evenly and prevents cracks.
