Tie-Dyed Cheesecake

Ingredients

  1. For the crust:
  2. 6 ounces graham cracker crumbs
  3. 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  4. Pinch kosher salt
  5. 7 tablespoons butter, browned
  1. For the filling:
  2. 3 8-ounce packages cream cheese
  3. 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  4. 1 1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
  5. 1 vanilla bean
  6. 5 eggs
  7. Food coloring

Directions

  1. Make the crust: Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Combine all dry ingredients in a medium mixing bowl, and mix well. Add butter, and combine.
  3. Pat mixture into 9-inch springform pan, pressing firmly into bottom and about 1/2 to 1 inch up the sides of the pan. Bake for 10 minutes. Remove pan from oven, and allow to cool completely.
  4. Make the filling: In a mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sugar, and vanilla bean until fluffy. Add vanilla extract and the eggs 1 at a time, and mix until smooth. Be careful not to overmix.
  5. Separate into 5 bowls, and tint with food coloring: green, blue, purple, pink, and orange.
  6. Pour into springform pan, and swirl with a toothpick or bamboo skewer.
  7. Bake for about 50 minutes, or until the cheesecake is just set in the middle.
