Need Coupons..

Check with me before using a clipper service.. I may not have as many as you need but I may save you a few bucks... I am pretty stocked so not using all my coupons each month I buy or given apx 10 papers each week some weeks fewer Im cutting down to 4 papers now that I am pretty stocked .  I will only charge you .60 cents for as many as I can fit in an envelope working on the estimate right now. Which is much cheaper than clipping services.. so just leave me a note on which coupons you need and I will tell you what I have.

*Note: Ignore my bad cutting...
http://www.tablespoon.com/recipes/rainbow-cheesecake-recipe/1/

*note: I didnt have a spring form pan so used kebbler graham pie crust
*note: I prefer to used thawed frozen cream cheese when baking bc it is easier to blend.

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups graham crackers, crushed (crust)
  • 2 Tablespoons sugar (crust)
  • 6 Tablespoons unsalted butter (crust)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon (crust)
  • 1 Pinch Salt (crust)
  • 2 Pounds Cream cheese, room temp
  • 1 1/3 Cups Sugar
  • 2 Teaspoons Vanilla
  • 4 Large Eggs
  • 1 Cup Sour Cream
  • 1 Cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 Pinch Salt
  • 1 Container Food colors (blue, yellow, green, red)

Directions

  1. 1Before you get started with the crust, make sure your springform pan is water tight. I do this by carefully wrapping a few layers of foil on the outside of the pan, working in both directions so water cannot get into the pan. Be careful not to rip the foil or water will get into your cake and ruin it!
  2. 2To make the crust, grind the graham crackers in a food processor until very fine. Then mix crushed crackers, salt, sugar, and cinnamon together in a bowl. Then mix in butter with your clean fingers.
  3. 3Press all but a few tablespoons of the graham cracker mixture into the prepared springform pan. (Save a bit of the crust mixture in case there are holes later) Press it down firmly in the pan. I like to use a measuring cup for this which makes it easy to get around the edges. You should have an even, flat crust.
  4. 4Bake the crust in a pre-heated 350 degree oven for 10 minutes on a low rack. Remove from the oven and cool completely before continuing. Turn oven temp down to 325.
  5. 5To make filling, cut cream cheese into pieces and add to a mixing bowl. Whip until smooth, maybe 4 minutes. Then add sugar and continue to beat until smooth again, another 4-5 minutes. Next, add salt, vanilla, and one egg at a time, beating briefly between each egg. Finally, beat in the sour cream and heavy cream.
  6. 6Once the mixture is well combined and very smooth, divide it into 6 dishes. Add food coloring to each dish to get the desired colors.
  7. 7Pour colored mixtures into prepared dish with cooled crust. Start with red and pour it right in the center. Continue to build the rainbow by pouring the fillings directly in the center. This will create layers so that each slice has some of each color.
  8. 8Place cheesecake into a baking dish a fill with boiling water about 1 inch up the side of the springform pan (pray that your dish is waterproof).
  9. 9Bake at 325 degrees in the water bath for one hour and 45 minutes.
  10. 10Turn off the oven, crack the door to the oven, and let the cake cool in the oven for one hour. The slow cooling will help it not crack.
  11. 11Then loosely wrap the dish in foil so the foil isn't touching the top of the cake and refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
  12. 12When ready to remove cake, run a clean narrow knife around the edge of the dish, remove the foil, unlock the spring, and carefully lift off the outer ring.
  13. 13Serve either alone or with a cherry/raspberry sauce. It's so rich and creamy that it really doesn't need a topping.
