Red Velvet Cheesecake




I baked it in a water bath to avoid cracks.



I was trying to find something an interesting dessert to make for Easter and came across this Red Velvet Cheesecake that I couldn't turn down.  As a huge fan of both red velvet and cheesecake (seen here and here), combining the two was genius.  It was the perfect end to our Easter meal.
