Which is better ( baked cheesecake recipe)?

Hi. I've found a very good recipe for baked cheese cake on the net.

as for filling part, it says " half and half or heavy cream".

well i know half and half is literally half cream and half milk while heavy cream is more like whipping cream.

I just don't know what kind of different results they would make.

i have both in my fridge.

Which would you recommend for a good baked cheesecake?

    I find heavy cream gives a better structure. Perfect for desserts unless you're on some low calorie bull sh*t

    which is better? that is hard to say in their liquid form they can be interchanged rather easily. heavy cream has more calories and fat, so if that is a consideration (but we are talking cheese cake here) then i would use the half and half. i would say either one, which ever needs to be used first.
