I have a question about the recipe "Raw, Vegan Strawberry Vanilla Cheesecake" from Gena Hamshaw. Can I use a tart pan instead of a springform pan?

I think it might be risky to substitute a tart pan because it isn't as deep as a springform pan. From the photo, the cake appears to be taller than a traditional tart.

Depends on the depth of your tart pan. Some have walls 2 - 3" tall. If you're using a traditional tart pan, you're going to end up with a lot of ingredients left over. If you do have a tall tart pan, I would recommend building a thin crust all the way up the side. A removable bottom and an expandable collar don't really operate the same way. Especially with tart pans, which often taper.

it depends on how tall your tart pan is, and whether it has a removable bottom; if it's at least 1.5" tall (with the same diameter) and has a removable bottom I'd say go for it. If it's shorter, or doesn't have a removable bottom you might run into problems with overflow or messy slices but if these might not bother you.

Even if it is deep enough, the ridged edge of the tart tin could cause a messy finish to that crumb crust. I'd use a cake pan with a removable bottom before I'd use a deep tart pan. ;o)
