This last year my friend Kristy and I had a Pampered Chef party. (If you need a consultant, let me know, I know a great one!)
The special for the month was a spring form pan for a really amazing price. I've wanted one, but hadn't needed one... I justified it because it was such a good deal. So I finally pulled it out to try it.
I had to double my regular recipe that I put in a pie pan in order to get the right thickness in the spring form pan. I also had some cream cheese that was given to me, which had been frozen and gets a slightly different texture, similar to working with ricotta cheese, I think.
8 Graham crackers, crushed
1/2 c. butter softened
1/4 c. sugar
Mix and press into bottom of pan
4 8oz packages cream cheese, softened
1 c. sugar
Mix till smooth then add:
2 tsp. vanilla
Pour over crust, bake at 350˚ for 70 minutes.
For the strawberry sauce I made something like this only put strawberries in instead.
