Is it safe to line a cheesecake pan with wax paper? I ran out of parchment paper and I don't want to run to the store. I have five cheesecakes and I will be using my cake pans instead of a spring form pan. TIA

I would be inclined not to use it regularly (, but in a pinch it does work, especially for what you intend (

If using for the bottom which will be completely covered with crust/filling, you can probably get away with that, but parchment is preferable. For the verticle sides I would NOT use wax paper since the exposed parts will melt during baking.

We used to use it all the time! Before parchment came onto the scene.
