I need to make a small cheesecake for a bride tasting.  Does anyone have a recipe for a cheesecake this small, or know where to point me in TCB?  I am cracking it open now, but on the off chance that someone has already done it, I would greatly appreciate the help.

I don’t make many cheesecakes, but for what it’s worth, I think it would be fine to just scale the cordon rose cheesecake to fit the 6” pan.  A 6” pan of the same height as the 9” pan will need 44% of the recipe.

Bake time will be somewhat shorter, you may want to use an instant read thermometer to check the temp at the center. I think it needs to be at least 150F, and Hector reports that the cake will freeze well if you take it higher, to 160F.

You could also use the lemon cheesecake in the Baby Cakes section of RHC as a guideline for modifications.  These would be muffin tin sized cheesecakes done in a silicone pan.

  Good morning. Check out the recipe for Miss Rose’s cheesecake in TCB. If you like that one I will do a baker’s per centage format to reduce it for a 6 inch X 2, inch pan for you.

  WARNING:
  This recipe is very heavy with sour cream. If you wish to modify this amount it can be done.

Good luck & have a nice day Nathan.

Thank you all so much for your replies.  The 44% scale worked well!  I tried it yesterday, and it lasted about 10 minutes at the office.  My tasting is Tuesday; I’ll be making another tomorrow.
