I was wondering if someone could help me, please.
I'm a decent cook, but not much of a baker yet. I found a simple cheesecake recipe that I would like to try, but I'm not sure about the crust.
Here is the recipe.
What You Need
PREHEAT oven to 350°F. Beat cream cheese, sugar and vanilla with electric mixer on medium speed until well blended. Add eggs; mix just until blended.
MICROWAVE milk in small microwaveable bowl on HIGH 15 seconds. Add instant coffee; stir until dissolved. Add to batter; mix well. Pour into crust.
BAKE 40 minutes or until center is almost set. Cool. Refrigerate several hours or overnight. Store leftover cheesecake in refrigerator.
My question concerns the crust. It says there Oreo Pie Crust 6oz, so I assume it's the ready-made. I bought an Oreo RM crust, but nowhere on the limited instructions/recipes on the label does it say that you can bake it for any significant time. I've only seen 5 minutes or so.
My question is then, can I bake the ready-made crust for 40 minutes? Will it burn? I don't want to wreck the cheesecake. I liked this recipe since I didn't have to make my own crust, and a chocolate crust sounded good. I just can't seem to find the answer I am looking for.
Thanks in advance!
