Me and my littlest brother both LOVE cheesecake. We found a delicious recipe, which is what I made for the project show. I posted the link for the recipe below. The trickiest part of this is the Oreo crust, which my mom makes. The cake is actually easy once you get the crust down. It takes a while to cook and chill, but it is soooo worth it. The recipe mentions a spring-form pan. You NEED this, otherwise the cake will not work. Trust me! We (finally!) found one at Wal-mart. Ours is pretty and red, and it works! The cheesecake turned out great, if you see the photo below.
