Crock pot Cheese Cake!

Saw this recipe on babycenter and thought I'd share:


=================


Crust 

- 1 cup graham cracker crumbs 
- 2 T brown sugar 
- 3 T melted butter 

Filling

- 16 oz cream cheese, room temperature 
- 3/4 cup white sugar 

- 2 large eggs, room temperature 
- 1/4 cup heavy cream 
- 1 tsp good vanilla 
- 1 tbsp flour 

Directions. 

Find a heat-resistant dish that will fit into your crockpot for the cheesecake. You are going to create a bain marie, or water bath. I used a 1.5 qt Corning Ware dish and it fit nicely into 6qt oval. I tried a round cake pan in a 4 qt round, and that fit too. But I opted for my 6qt, because I'm more comfortable with how it heats.

In a plastic zipper bag, beat the animal crackers into crumbs with a rolling pin. Put a cup of the crumbs into a medium bowl, and add melted butter and brown sugar. Stir until it's wet and crumby. Press the crumbs into the bottom of the dish you are going to use.

In a separate bowl, cream the cheese, sugar, eggs, flour, cream, and vanilla with a hand-mixer. Unless you have one of those fancy Kitchen Aids. Then use that. Pour the cheese mixture on top of the crust. Lick the bowl. 

Add 1/2 to 1 cup of water to the bottom of your crockpot. Lower the dish inside, being careful to not slosh water into your cheesecake. 

Cover and cook on high for 2-3 hours. Check after 1 hour, just in case. The cheesecake is done when the edges are no longer shiny and have set. Touch lightly to see that you don't get a bunch of stuff on your finger---then you know it's done. My cheesecake wasn't perfectly set in the middle, but I unplugged the crock anyhow.

I cooked it for exactly 2 hours. Let the cheesecake sit in the cooling crockpot for an hour, before removing and transferring to the refrigerator. Chill in the refrigerator for about 2 hours before cutting and serving.

The thing is, this is almost exactly like just making it in your oven...and it would be less stuff to wash that way.  So I'm not sure why you'd do it in a crockpot? :P  It DOES sound yummy though!

Maybe the idea is to create a water bath in the crockpot so that your cheesecake won't crack?  I usually just put a cake pan 1/2 full of water on the shelf below my cheesecake when I bake it to keep it from cracking and it does the trick.  Except for when I make oreo cheesecake.  It always cracks. :(  Regardless of how you make it though, I love me some cheesecake!

Yeah I agree with meany.  I guess it's more pain to pour water into the baking sheet in the oven than in the crockpot.  Besides it just sounds cool that it's from a crockpot LOL!
