this recipe makes a nice bottom for cheesecake also, I prebaked at 350 for 8 minutes, and let cool, then proceeded with my regular filling and baked my cheesecake. Any extra that I didn't use for the crust, I just placed in a baggie and froze for another time. Used half this recipe for the bottom of a 9 inch spring form pan.
