  • No harm in baking the filling in the pre-bought crust, you don't need to bake the crust ahead of that but it won't hurt it to bake it with the filling. I've done it with other pies (I don't make baked cheesecakes, lol!). So if you found a recipe you like for filling, go ahead and use it.

  • Just look on the back or side of the Graham cracker box...they usually have a basic recipe there!

    and no you shouldn't need to prebake the graham crust.

  • i would be making it from scratch! I have all the ingredients, just cant find a good recipe online or in my cookbooks (since those recipes have you bake the crust and cheesecake ingredients together)

  • This one is AMAZING! (Best with the gingerbread crust, but would be good with gramcracker) http://www.marthastewart.com/recipe/gingerbread-cheesecake

    I LOVE this one, I think the chocolate is too much on it though. http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Coconut-Fudge-Cheesecake-104056

    My absolute FAVORITE (it's SOOO rich) is http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/Cappuccino-Fudge-Cheesecake-106231

    Overall epicurious has WONDERFUL recipes. Something to keep in mind, all the ones I've specifically linked to will all be baked in I think a 10" DEEP pan, so you'd want to either cut the recipe in half (or more) or have more than one of the pre-made crusts for.

    If you want a good no-bake, I've made one very similar to this before http://dessert.food.com/recipe/no-bake-peach-cheesecake-123936 . The filling is basically cool whip and cream cheese. It's cool and light and no baking required.

  • I won a bake-off competition at work with that Gingerbread Cheesecake recipe (of course I didn't use Martha's cookie dough recipe, I used a family gingerbread recipe instead).
