I should have known better. A NY style cheesecake baked in a 9 x 11 non-spring form pan without using a parchment liner would not work. I would say this to anyone. Yet I did it. Plus, I used too much crust. Worse, I left assembly to the last minute. I meant to add fresh mint leaves and piped whipped cream to decorate, but making/chilling the fresh berry compote took up all my time. Not so pretty, but yummy. Whew! Disaster averted; lesson learned. Sort of... This was kind of fun!
