I never ate cheesecake growing up … I was such a picky eater that the idea of making cake out of cheese just seemed wrong. It's only been in the last few years that I've started trying out cheesecake recipes (that have mostly included peanut butter). Last week, I made this one for Oscar night (sorry for the icky photography)!
This was pretty good … VERY rich! I may have left it in the oven for a bit too long – I've no idea how to tell when a cheesecake is done cooking – and consequently tasted just a little bit burned around the edges. I think with this recipe I've finally conceded that I should leave cheesecake baking to the experts and stick to cookies!
