  4. Pour crust mix into lined pan, gently press the crust into an even layer, going up the sides of the pan about 1/4- 1/2 inch
  5. Mix together the cream cheese, sugar, 1/4c sour cream, vanilla,cornstarch and eggs
    *use a food processor for a denser cake

  12. Start cooking the 1/4 lb of chopped bacon, when mostly cooked add maple syrup and cook til bacon is done and syrup is carmelized, allow to cool in a single layer (dont eat all the candied bacon!)
  13. After cake is cooled completely, sprinkle the top with the candied bacon bits
  14. When ready to serve, depan the cake.(its good to have a helper for this part) Gently remove the foil by placing cake on the edge of a counter with one hand pulling the foil down, the other hand should be under the cake, catching it as it comes off the foil
