YES, the Bisquick is meant to go into the cheesecake mixture. There is no shell/crust needed because because of the Bisquick in the mixture (that's how all of the "Impossibly Easy" Bisquick recipes work). This is not your typical cheesecake, so the texture is a bit different. It's kind of a cross between a cheesecake and regular cake (similar to the texture of brownies).
That being said, this was an excellent dessert that was really easy to make! My boyfriend (who is not big into desserts) really enjoyed it and even said he likes the texture. Just know that this is not a typical cheesecake recipe, so the results make not be what you typically expect of a cheesecake, but it is still very good.
