  • Cream cheese MUST be room temp for the correct consistency for cheesecake. I am a Pastry Chef turned SAHM and I pretty much specialize in cheesecakes.
    As long as you don't add any other ingredients, you can beat the cheese for quite a while. Once you begin adding eggs, sugar,etc... you will overmix the batter and it will crack while baking. It will also become dense and not light and creamy.

  • It needs to be at room temperature. Beat it with a mixer until it is smooth.

  • It's lumpy b/c it wasnt room temp when you mixed it.
