BAKE 50-55 minutes, or until the center is almost set. Run knife around the rim of pan to losen the cake; cook completely in pan.

Garnish with fresh berries if desired.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Do not microwave butter or coolwhip. Important to run the knife around the ring. Divided means you will split those ingredients. Do not call Rob if you make this cheesecake (he will devour it), unless you put fruit on top.
