  1. Preparation time: 10-15 minutes
  2. Total cooking time: 40-45 minutes
  3. Chilling time: at least 3 hours
  4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cover the outside of a 9-inch spring form pan with aluminum foil and place pan on a 9x16 inch or similar baking sheet.
  5. To make the crust, in a medium sized bowl, stir together the ground cookies and the melted butter. Press the mixture into the bottom of the spring form pan. Bake in the preheated oven for 8 minutes and let cool for 10 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile In a food processor or large mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese, Duncan Hines frosting starter and flavor mix, sugar, vanilla and flour.
  7. Add the eggs one at a time, pulse or blend after each addition just until eggs are incorporated. Pour the batter over the cooled crust.

  10. To make the white chocolate cream, melt the chocolate in a microwave safe bowl in the microwave at 15 second intervals, stirring until smooth. Fold the melted chocolate into the sour cream. Spread the white chocolate cream over the cheesecake.
  11. Chill the cheesecake in the pan for at least 3 hours until firm. Release the sides of the pan and transfer to a serving platter; cut into wedges to serve. Garnish if desired with Maraschino cherries.

Easy Moist Cake Layers

Easy Moist Cake Layers

The way I ensure that my cake layers will be moist and never dry, is to invert the layer(s) on a serving plate or foil covered board while still quite warm and then wrap the top and sides of the layer(s) with plastic wrap. This seals in all the steam that would have otherwise escaped resulting in a very moist, but not soggy cake. Everyone always comments on how moist and delicious my cakes are and they are very surprised when they find out I use cake mixes (Duncan Hines of course)! Refrigerate the layers while still warm. This will help the layers firm up a bit. When completely cooled, the layers will be easy to frost and decorate. Let layers sit covered at room temp for 20 minutes or so before frosting. If your work area is humid, let the layers sit a little longer so the condensation will form on the plastic wrap and not on the cake itself. Remove plastic wrap and frost and decorate as desired.
