Help! What to do with ruined cheesecake?

Pia | Apr 21, 2010 07:50 PM

I just did something really stupid. I needed to use up a batch of lemon curd and happened to have some cream cheese in the fridge, so I threw together a crustless cheesecake, planning to freeze it. I didn't use a springform pan, just a regular cake pan.

Here's the stupid part: While the cheesecake was still warm, I decided to unmold it on to a plate to help it cool down. Then I changed my mind and tried to PUT IT BACK in the pan. As you can imagine, I didn't line it up exactly right and the whole thing fell apart. So now I have a whole bunch of cheesecake mush.

What can I do with this? It's too solid to do something like a trifle, and it's already cooked so I can't use it as cheese filling. Any ideas? Maybe I can mix it into ice cream?
