Several of ya mentioned liking cheesecake in the cakes thread. I thought I'd share one that I've made on special occasions and seems to get more requested everytime. I gotta warn ya, though. This one isn't for the faint of heart. It's RICH. Triple Layer Cheesecake Chocolate Crumb Crust (recipe follows) 3 packages (8oz.)

Repeat procedure with chocolate and vanilla chips. My Changes I make my chocolate crumb crust using chocolate cookie crumbs. You can buy oreo cookie crumbs or make your own by scraping the cream off the cookie and using a food processor to make the crumbs. I use 2 cups crumbs to 1/2 cup melted butter. Mix and press. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes. Cool completely. For my cake 1. I mix the cream cheese, sugar, flour and salt first 2. I add the eggs next, one at a time; mixing well after each one. 3. Then I add the sour cream and vanilla and mix until smooth I cook my cheesecake in a water bath* * Line outside of springform pan with a couple of layers of aluminum foil. Set the pan into a baking pan slightly larger. I use a jelly roll pan. Don't really matter just something that will hold a couple inches of water. Then I add an inch or two of HOT water in the larger pan. I bake mine at 350 degrees for ONE hour and FIVE minutes. DO NOT open the oven door. Just turn the oven off. After an hour, crack the oven door. Leave in the oven for another 2-4 hours. Then I take it out and run a knife around the edges to loosen. Refrigerate at least 3 hours before serving. With the Triple Drizzle, I melt my chips in a ziplock baggie. Put the chips and shortening in the corner of the baggie and twist the baggie around the chips/shortening. You can squish the chips/shortening to mix in the baggie. Once melted, I just cut a tiny corner out of the baggie and drizzle over my cake.
