    Expert Tips

    If you’re a baker who likes to add your own touch, try stirring in 1/2 cup of these favorites: miniature semisweet chocolate chips; chopped candied fruits; chopped dried cranberries or dried cherries; chopped hazelnuts or pecans; or crushed hard peppermint candies.
    Don’t have a springform pan? Make and bake this recipe in a 13x9x2-inch rectangular pan. Cut the cheesecake into squares, or cut with cookie cutters in holiday shapes. Miniature cookie cutters make mini-cheesecakes, the perfect size for placing on cookie plates.
