  5. Beat in the lemonade concentrate, vanilla, and red food coloring; pour cream cheese mixture over the crust.

  7. Remove the cake from the oven and run a knife around the inside edge of the pan; turn the oven off; return the cake to the oven for an additional 1 hour.
  8. Chill, uncovered, overnight.
