So, here's how the story goes. Every now and then I get an urge to go bake something. Sometimes I follow that urge, sometimes I ignore it.
Either way, everyone around me at the moment will know because I'll start to flip through recipe books for something to make. And because I'm such a dessert person, no one can wait till I get to the kitchen and make them all something sweet. Even if it turns out bad, which is most of the time... lol.
So, this time, I decided "Why don't I try making a cheesecake?"
So that's what I did. After an astonishingly large amount of cream cheese, barely enough sour cream, and a gloopy can of strawberry pie filling, here was the result.

Innocent looking heart attack in a pan.


I forgot to loosen it from the sides. It cracked.


After the gloopy strawberry filling.


My wonderful slice.


A side view.


Yum.


While I really enjoyed eating it, I don't know if I'll ever make it again. It was fairly simple, and everyone at home loved it. They loved it so much I had to salvage it and put it in the freezer for later, when I'm too lazy to bake.  Grin

I apologize if the pictures are too big... Undecided

It looks so tastey! Good job!

(Btw, you can prevent the middle from splitting by placing a pan of water underneath the cake while it's baking)

That cheesecake looks great.  I'm so glad it came out right.  Why aren't you sure about making it again?

Yeah, I've read somewhere that cheesecake will turn out the best if its baking in a moist environment. I'll try that if I get to making cheesecake again lol  Wink

Thanks!
And I don't know if I'll make it again because as I've mentioned before, lol it's a heart attack in a pan. I'd hate to think of how much saturated fat and cholesterol is in there...lol. As my Dad said, it's a recipe for clogged arteries!
I'll eventually make it again...but definitely not in the short run.
