    That was me. I opened hoping to find another cheesecake recipe to try out. That looks mightyfine, and as Mike said this is real easy.


    Here is the recipe if anyone is interested.

    Amaretto Cheesecake
    Found this on a di Saronno recipe card - tasted like a custard - very nice and real easy to make

    1-1/2 cups coarse graham cracker crumbs
    1/4 cup brown sugar
    1/2 stick butter, melted
    1 fifteen ounce carton ricotta cheese
    1 eight ounce package cream cheese
    4 eggs lightly beaten
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/3 cup Amaretto di Saronno
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    1/4 teaspoon salt

    Combine crumbs and butter and brown sugar. Press over bottom and sides of a greased 9-inch springform pan, chill. Beat together the ricotta and cream cheese until smooth. Add remaining ingredients - beat until smooth. Put mixture into pan. Stabilize the Egg at 325. Bake (indirect - legs up) for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until the middle is firm. Cool 20-30 minutes in pan before removing.

    Mine took about 1-1/2 hours to cook.

    We did one a while back ourselves, the Wife is a Cheesecake Maven!!



    We also used a water bath.



    Damm...I'm hungry

    I spent most of my money on good bourbon, and bad women...the rest, I just wasted!!

    A Maven? Why the big words (I had to look it up and it wasn't, unfortunately, what I though it was)? Couldn't you have just said "expert?" It would have saved me some time.

    I have been using the Cook's Illustrated baking book lately for some breads and deserts and have been looking at giving the cheese cake a try (very involved) and even completed the first step - bought a spring form pan. Now, due to this thread, I have to give it a try.

    Long time no see Boss!!

    Why don't you give some thought to showing up over @ Leroy's on October 4'th for the Coop-di-Doo?

    Yeah, due to this work thingy I haven't had my usual form time. Currently it is hit or miss and today just happened to be a hit.

    I seen Leroy's open invite post this morning and, following his directions to a tee, completed the RSVP. We will see you there.

    That Leroy is a brave man opening up the Coop like that.

    Chubby - I have to say that last photo is absolutely superb. The angle is great and everything stands out so well.

    Kudos on that shot.
