I have had Pam's Cheesecake a few times now.
Once in Kansas. Which is where this cheesecake hails from.
Once again when Jessica PinterTested. It was CRAZY good too.
The fudge striped cookies, sugar, and butter created a caramelized crust.
So the other night, when I got this text from Marge - I had almost NO reservations about wanting to make it!
Word is the underground name for this cheesecake is the "Twenty Dollar Cheesecake" - due to the sheer amount of cream cheese blocks it requires.
But it's so, so, so worth every penny.
So Marge arrived. Cream Cheese, Sour Cream, Cookies, and Whipped Cream in hand.
And we got to baking.
Marge made the crust while I whipped the cream cheese into oblivion.
I wasn't planning a blog post about this cheesecake, so I didn't take any pictures of the process.
But right after the cheesecake in the oven, MOD (master of disaster) was about to strike, at epic level proportions.
First off. This happened.
Unrelated to cheesecake.
And it remains like that several days later.
I don't have the energy, or height to deal with it.
Secondly, I should have reviewed Jessica's Pintertest post:
Welp. Lesson learned. Because the cheesecake decided to party in my oven.
It still turned out beautifully.
100% devoured at church on Sunday AM.
And let's get to the MOST EXPENSIVE CHEESECAKE EVER part....
Monday night, I threw a sheet of Sweet Potato Fries in my oven.
10 minutes later I went to flip them...
I open my oven, and smoke comes BLASTING OUT.
And the whole bottom of the oven erupts into FLAMES.
Like. FIERY FLAMES.
Like, as in FIRE.
I shut the door.
And run opening doors, windows, and grabbing my cell phone....debating between 9-1-1 and my dad.
And eventually the flames went out. And smoke steamed out the top for a while...
And then when I went to inspect the situation...this happened.
The handle came off.
And some side metal bar part.
So, I'm thinking, I might need a new oven?
Or at least some ridiculous repair.
This is one expensive cheesecake.
So for now, me and my microwave are BFF's.
Hopefully she doesn't burst into flames anytime soon.
