Rose, that Cordon Rose Cheesecake recipe is THE best cheesecake! Years and years ago, someone gave my mother a recipe for a 10 inch cheesecake, and we have made none other cheesecake ever since. When I bought your Cake Bible, the first thing I did was look at your cheesecake recipe to compare and see it I might like to try it. Well, lo and behold, my 10 inch recipe is a scaled up version of your Cordon Rose Cheesecake! Either size, I could eat that cheesecake for breakfast, lunch and dinner, it is soooooo yummy!
Now another question on how to make mini cheesecakes - how big are the pans used for the directions you gave? I have all sizes, from the little 3 inch-ers, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 inch cheesecake pans. I also have the really mini cheesecake pan that King Arthur Flour has in their catalog - makes 12 that are about 2 inches (or less) around.
