I'm a big fan of your raspberry cheesecake recipe. It always tastes great but it tends to crack down the middle. Any suggestions on how to avoid this?

Cheesecakes can crack if they are the slightest bit overcooked. I've had this problem, too, but thankfully the top of the cheesecake is covered with raspberries so no one will know!
