How to make it
- Making the crust:
- Preheat oven to 250 F and adjust the rack to the lower middle position.
- Grease a springform pan with 1/2 Tbsp of softened butter.
- It is a good idea to wrap your springform pan in foil to prevent leaking.
- Combine crushed fruit loops and butter.
- Spread mixture evenly in pan with a flat-bottomed measuring cup.
- Bake for about 5- 10 min until slightly toasted and fragrant.
- Cool on a wire rack.
- Making the filling:
- Set oven to 500F.
- Beat cheese in a bowl for 1 minute on low speed.
- Add salt and half the sugar, then beat.
- Add remaining sugar and beat.
- Add sour cream, lemon, and vanilla and beat.
- Add yolks and beat.
- Add eggs, two at a time and beat.
- (Tip: Before you add the eggs make sure there are no clumps or air pockets. These will cause cracks in your cheesecake. Do not mix longer than necessary.)
- Now color your filling:
- Divide the plain filling into five equal parts.
- Mix and match your basic colors of food dye to make an array of colors and color each cup of filling a different color.
- Slowly pour layer by layer into prepared crust. POUR FILLING EXACTLY INTO THE CENTER EACH TIME. Filling will spread on its own.
- Baking and cooling:
- Get a pan larger than your springform pan (it should be at least 2-3 in deep).
- Place the cheesecake pan in the larger pan and put in oven.
- Quickly fill the pan with water at least halfway up the springform pan(using a pitcher prevents spilling any water).
- Bake cheesecake for 10 min at 500F.
- Without opening oven door, decrease oven temperature to 200F.
- After 45 min check the center of your cheesecake with a cooking thermometer. Once your cheesecake reaches an internal temperature of 150 remove it from the oven.
- Transfer the cake to a wire rack and cool for 2-3 hours at room temperature
- Wrap cheesecake and cool in for at refrigerator for 3 more hours.
- *Your cheesecake can be refrigerated for up to 4 days.
