My beloved 8-year-old nephew nicknamed himself "Boo-Raj" (rhymes with garage) and this is his favorite dessert. I cannot show up at his home without this cheesecake, and I live in another state (so I bring my giant cheesecake pan with me). We have a big family, so I need to make a big cake when we are together. I have to go to Costco to buy a 3lb brick of cream cheese, because this is one big Boo-Raj cheesecake! NOTE: I also have used the "bain marie" method of baking this - where you put the cheesecake pan in a deep roasting pan and fill the outer pan half way up the side of the cheesecake pan with hot water, after you put it in the oven -- it bakes a little nicer this way, but is not critical. If I use this method, I always encase the bottom of the cheesecake pan with foil, letting it come up over the edges to keep the water from seeping into the bottom of the springform pan. Passive work time listed reflects the entire cooling and chilling process, and you really can't speed it up - I start it before breakfast so it's ready for dinner.
