Made my first cheesecake

I'm pretty much more into cooking than baking. However, my mom bought me a new spring form pan and I wanted to try it out. It came with a recipe booklet. So from scratch I made a apple cinnemon struesel cheesecake.

It tasted like a professional cake. People were impressed. : )

Good for you. Cheesecakes really aren't that difficult. The hardest part is straining out all the calories before pouring the batter into the springform pan.

Congratulations! Well now you've gone and done it. You've opened Pandora's Box.

Prepare to gain 40-50 pounds as you try recipe after recipe for calorie laden cheesecakes.

I love cheesecake but don't make it very often as a tiny little sliver is about a gazillion calories.

Congratulations! Sounds yummy. Cheesecakes are really fun to make and present, because like Katie says, they are not really that hard to make, and your family and friends will be very impressed! Good luck and have fun...

Congratulations! They are easy to make and you
can do many different flavor combos. One served
at a restaurant near here even has chunks of
carrot cake in it. UUMMM GOOD
