This does not fit in a 9 inch spring form pan and the baking directions were incorrect. I wound up with a burnt crust, browned top and liquid center and a mess in the bottom of the oven. I'll try it again with a bigger pan and hopefully be able to figure out the right tempature and oven setting to bake it at.
