MR. FOOD KITCHEN --- For future reference -- Can we use corn or rice chex to make a crust ? - would we add corn syrup, melted butter and flavoring and then press it on rhe bottom and partially up the sides of a spring form pan or pie plate.--I'll try anything once --Thanks for your help.

this sounds great and sounds like it would make a perfect presentation... With dinner to make a fast dessert sounds marvelous..

A recipe for cheesecake that starts with cheesecake? Very disappointing.

You have to s tart somewhere.. Sounds great to me..
