This recipe was originally printed in the Williams-Sonoma Dessert book. I adjusted ingredients to my personal tastes. If you don't have any bagel chips, substitute with additional graham cracker crumbs. Scraping frequently is very important, and do not overmix after adding the eggs.
No need to bake it in a water bath, it bakes out beautifully! This can also be baked in a 13 x 9-inch baking pan, but baking times vary slightly, just prepare as stated only bake for 20 minutes in a 300°F oven, remove and cover loosely with foil and return to oven to bake for another 20-30 minutes, if you don't have any mini chocolate chips just use the regular-size, for a less sweeter filling use only 8 tablespoons (1/2 cup sugar) prep time includes chilling time.
Totally delicious and refreshing, this creamy margarita cheesecake pie pairs beautifully with a spicy Mexican meal of tacos, enchiladas, rice and beans. Very easy prep, with no baking required, so it's also a wonderful make-ahead dessert! Cook time is chill time. P.S. I sometimes cheat and use a prepared graham cracker crust. I hope you enjoy!
I got this recipe from a local grocery store where I take cooking classes. I made this cheesecake a couple of days ago for a party and it was so easy and fast. People couldn't believe that it was homemade.
I've always loved the Original Sara Lee Cheesecake and this easy version reminds me of one. This cheeesecake is great for a weeknight dessert, since it takes only minutes to prepare. It sets up beautifully and evenly. Cooking time does not include the one hour refrigeration.
From www.TopSecretRecipes.com I don't know where I got this pumpkin cheesecake recipe. I have made this cheesecake around Thanksgiving, when the pumpkin spices are calling! It is the same as Todd Wilbur's Top Secret recipe.
