This recipe was taken from a women's magazine featuring recipes for Christmas treats from Disney World's resort restaurants. My sister was lucky enough to work at Disney World as an intern, so she knows first-hand how good the food is! This one is from the Pop Century Resort. We've both made this for food days at work. It's always a hit for the neon colors and the taste! It's fun and easy to make - so have the kids join you in the kitchen. Let them mix up the colored batches and "help" to swirl them.

How to Make Rainbow (or Tie-Dyed) Cheesecake

Step-by-Step

  • 1Position the oven rack to the middle position and preheat to 325 degrees F. Coat a 9"x3" spring-form pan with cooking spray. Wrap the outside of the pan with foil to prevent leaking.
  • 2Crust: Combine the ingredients in a small bowl and blend until the melted butter is fully incorporated and the mixture is crumbly. Press firmly into the bottom of the spring-form pan and bake for 5-6 minutes. When crust is baked, remove the pan from the oven and allow to cool. Place a roasting pan large enough to accommodate the spring form pan in the center of the rack and fill halfway with water.
  • 3Filling: In a large bowl, beat the cream cheese and sugar until smooth. At low speed, combine the eggs, sour cream flour and vanilla one at a time, blending completely until smooth and fluffy.
  • 4Divide the batter evenly into 4 bowls; tint 1 bowl yellow, 1 green, 1 red and the last purple. Pour into the spring-form pan, one color at a time, starting with yellow (yellow acts as the base color that the others are swirled into). With a rubber spatula, gently swirl the colors together to achieve the tie-dyed effect. Place the pan in the water-filled roasting pan.
  • 5Bake for 1 hour, 25 minutes or until the center jiggles slightly. Turn the oven off and cake stand in the hot water for 1 hour, 40 minutes with the oven door closed. Remove from the oven, run a butter knife around the edge to release from the pan. Allow to cool. Chill overnight in the refrigerator.
