    Danielle I just wanted to tell you that you can make any cheesecake recipe in any shape pan and thickness you want. It's a very adaptable item. You can bake whole sheet pans or mini's with the same batter.
    Take any pan size you want, line it with foil and spray it. Line with cookie crumbs (if you like) and pre-bake that, then cool. Mix up your favorite recipe and make it as deep or as shallow as you want. Cheesecake has no real rise to it so it will be the same height as your raw batter. Bake in a 275 oven until set. Cool, invert to remove and slice.

    A really solid book on cheesecakes is "Cheesecake Extraordinare" by Mary Crownover (it was like 15.00). I've made at least a half dozen recipes from her, they all turned out perfect.

    Sorry I would have posted a recipe but I really don't know what flavor your looking for or how big of servings you want. 40 dessert or for a mini tray?
