and now I need YOUR help. Come eat! I am not eating an entire bloody cheesecake by myself. I’m not.

The tricks: (based off of this recipe from Dean’s big yellow Gourmet book)

1.) You don’t really need a waterbath (a very large baking pan filled with water to bake the cake in). Which is good, because I haven’t got a pan large enough.
2.) Use a 9″ pan, no smaller, no bigger.
3.) Use a little less sugar, and add some cinnamon.
4.) Bake for 55 minutes, not 45.
5.) Skip the bizarro sour cream topping. It’s cake, not a taco!

Once we have pwned the cheesecake, we move on to make rainbow cookies.
