Today is a combination of a GADGET and TIP! Try cooking a CHEESECAKE IN A SLOW COOKER. There are lots of great reasons to use a slow cooker to make cheesecake. It maintains a steady even heat while steaming the cheesecake to perfection. The cake will taste creamy, smooth and silky, with less of a chance of the top cracking. It’ll only take a few hours to cook and won’t heat up your kitchen. Using a small 6” springform pan makes just the right amount of cheesecake for six without waste or taking up much refrigerator space in unlikely case of leftovers. I like this because I can eat a whole big cheesecake and this keeps my portions down.
