    I make an awesome "real" cheese cake. My cousin Misty loves cheese cake but develped an allergy to eggs. Is there anything I can substitute for the eggs so that she can eat my heavenly creation?

    The role that eggs play in cheesecake is a binder - it's like the glue that holds it together and gives it the stiffer texture when baked. I've seen some recipes in the past that use corn flour (corn starch) which will play a similar role - about 1-2tbsp I think. I've not tried it myself though! I have a friend who is allergic to eggs and another who is vegan so I'm always on the look out for egg-free baking recipes - let me know how you get on!
