I made this cheesecake twice over the holidays. The first time, liquid dripped out of the bottom of my springform pan onto the bottom of the oven while it was baking. It filled my oven (and house) with smoke before I discovered it. The cheesecake was ruined because it tasted like smoke. I was so bummed! The second time I made it, I put a cookie sheet on the oven rack below the cheesecake to catch the drips! That's an important step!
Not only does this cheesecake have a visual wow factor, it is incredibly tasty too! Those candy cane kisses really work some magic!
