I plan to make a no-bake cheesecake as one of the desserts on the menu for Thanksgiving dinner tomorrow. The recipe calls for the use of a 9-inch springform pan. Normally I follow a recipe to the letter, regarding the ingredients and equipment to be used. However I don't have a springform pan, and finances are so tight right now that I can't afford to make
the investment in one, not even a generic springform pan.
Can I substitute a 9-inch pie tin? It's the disposable aluminum variety.
Does this make any difference? If this won't work I heard you can substitute a cake pan (the circular 9-in. kind) for a springform.
If I have to use a cake tin as a substitute for the springform pan,
can I just use the disposable aluminum kind?
If anybody needs the recipe for reference, below is the link that will take you to it.
