I was quite dissapointed when I couldn't find the right baking pan I was looking for to make my Praline Cheese cake. I shared my dissapointment with my neighbor & she brought up a great idea of making a check-board cheese. I tried it & couldn't resist cutting it up before shevuos to see how it looks. Got you the photo & recipe of this wonderful cheese cake-it's heaven & almost gone!

Then, mix well following 6 ingredients until smooth.
Divide mixture in half & add last 5 ingredients to one half of the mixture.
Follow instructions on baking pan how to form checkboard effect.
Bake each layer on 350 for 45 minutes in another baking pan filled with water. (this prevents it from cracking.) After 45 minutes close flame and let cool in oven.
