well, u should get back to your photo instead of that "Chinese food bucket" thingy. I have just 15 minutes baking time left. This Cheesecake takes 1hr 30min. I pre-baked the gram bottom(never call it a crust cuz pies have crusts , not cakes). So far so good. It looks great. I hope it doesn't turn out pithy. I love that word "pithy"

ACTUALLY the term crust in baking is the outer hard shell or skin like in bread or pies...

and a cheesecake is actually not a cake at all but a custard pie :)

not a pie, custard cake maybe, not a pie. So I stay clear of pie crusts. Oh yea, this time I used your plastic wrap idea. My "cake" has predictably sunken tho my boy thinks it's a jewel.

I remember my grandmother's cookies having a slight baking soda flavor. Any good cookie has this and suffers in flavor if it doesn't. I wont know about my cheesecake until it spends all night in the fridge. I topped it with a thick lemon glaze.

Thank you all for your help.

All the best,
Robert
P.S. to Jen, I realize that most cheesecakes may resemble a pie and merit a pie curst. My cheesecakes are formulated to be true cakes with a decidedly bready texture so I treat them as such.

Sorry to burst you bubble, but a cheesecake is a pie. It's got a crust and a filling and that makes it a pie.

Check this out. After reading the definition of pie, scroll down a see that cheesecake is given as an example of a sweet pie.

Cheesecakes are pies, tomatos are fruits, KMart owns Sears and Sears own Lands End. Who cares!? Cheesecakes are still the best!

Nah, only cheeseCAKE want-to-bes have crusts. The real thing doesn't need it or may have just a dusting of cracker crumbs to help keep them from sticking. No pie, so help me.

LOL even with graham crumbs its STILL a pie.. its a well known fact. Cheesecake is just called that.. but really its a pie

one of the reasons its not called cheesepie as in england and many other places cheese pie refers to a savoury pasty!

Yall may now line up for mah autograph
