We are baking a cheesecake for a party tonight, so we need to get it cooked this morning so it can cool before the party. Unfortunately, we don't have enough time to bake it before we have to leave for a lunch date with my family and won't be back until later in the afternoon. If we use our oven's auto-shut-off feature and bake it while we're gone, will the cheesecake be OK? Normally we pull cheesecakes out to let them cool as soon as their done. If we set the auto-shut-off for five or ten minutes before the cheesecake should be done, will the oven allow for sufficient cooling?
