It's been years since I made a cheesecake. I can't find my old recipe. So I'm making a Cheesecake Factory knockoff cheesecake. Or so the recipe claims. It has to ripen for 2 days before eating it. I think this is some kind of dessert torture. I gathered ingredients: and made a Nilla Wafer/almond crust: The recipe said to cook at 350 for 1 hour and 15 minutes then let it sit for another hour with the oven off. It has 23 minutes to go and I hope to god it's done and I am not going to give my relatives food poisoning. The comments and reviews also said to put a pan of water in the oven while baking to keep it from cracking or turning brow. Seems to have worked.
Please be cooked.
Update on cake after thanksgiving. If it didn't kill us.
