So… you know that feeling when you’ve got so much going on that it feels like you’ve got no time to think of cooking, let alone baking, but all you really want to do is eat cheesecake? Or maybe, you just generally want to eat cheesecake? In either case, I’ve got the solution for you! I present to you my super easy, five ingredient cheesecake. Though, technically, this is more pie than cake, as it’s baked in a pie shell. In any case, it’s delicious, and you should probably go ahead and drop whatever you’re doing and make it. Now.
