I added cherry pie filling on top. Yum!
I haven't made a homemade cheesecake in forever. I picked up a 6 pack of cream cheese from BJ's and decided to give it a go. This endeavor meant that I had to go buy a spring-form pan so off to AC Moore I went. I ended up with a 10" pan but most recipes are for 8" or 9" pans. It took me a while, but I figured out how to convert the recipe for a larger pan. My mom bought me the Junior's Cheesecake cookbook a while back so I figured it was time to try it out. I made their original basic cheesecake. What's different about Junior's cheesecake is that bottom layer of spongecake. It has a lemony taste and is oh-so-good! It was way better than graham crackers. This cake was seriously to die for so try it if you feel inclined. I found the recipe online for your guys. It is labor intensive but well worth it!
Naked cheesecake, lol
