Making a Cheesecake into Bars--Pan question

brownie | Sep 20, 2007 07:33 AM

Hounds,

My question is this: I'm going to make the Deep Dark Chocolate Cheesecake from Oct '06 Gourmet (i think, or maybe BA). I made the cake last year and it was amazing! I'm going to bring it to a Break Fast this weekend, but it was requested that I bring it in bar form. So, I baked it in a springform pan. If I wanted to make it in a brownie pan, or a bigger pan if needed, can I do that or will the cake be terminally stuck in the pan? Also, how would I adjust baking time, as I assume the bars will be less high than the cake?

Or, do I just have to bake it in the brownie pan and then cut and lift each bar out individually? Can i bake it on top of wax paper or is that a bad idea? You can see that this potential deviation from the norm is bringing all sorts of cluelessness out!
