I signed into my Facebook account one day and saw a message. It was one of my friends requesting a cheesecake for her husband's birthday. Of course it wasn't just any cheesecake, it was a salted caramel cheesecake. Ummm...YES!!
One of the most important things about making a cheesecake is making sure the cream cheese, eggs, sour cream, and butter reach room temperature. I didn't let my cream cheese get to room temperature once and I had a nice, lumpy cheesecake (it was still delicious.)
