After licking the beater, the bowl and spatula I was pretty sure this cheesecake was going to be good! I had looked up recipes and found so many!
Like this one with chocolate chips.
The girls at Our Best Bites added carmeled pecans to theirs.
Of course Paula Deen has a version too (I almost did this one).
and AllRecipes had a marbled version. (AllRecipes is a great resource for tried and true recipes!)
They are all almost the same base recipe - although a lot of them use a gingersnap crust. I LOVE gingersnaps! I ended up using the Pioneer Woman's because it was most like the lime almond cheesecake that I like to make.
PW's version has a layer of caramel sauce on the crust and then again on top of the cheesecake. While that sounded good - it also sounded a little TOO sugary for me. I like my cheesecake pretty unadulterated. So I omitted all of the caramel steps, and followed Paula's lead and added a teaspoon of vanilla to the batter.
I'm not opposed to a little whipped cream though. And maybe with a few crushed gingersnaps on top. So much so, that the food stupor I was in after a delicious dinner, made it impossible to remember to take any pictures (PW has a nice one with the recipe though)! It was good though - especially if you like pumpkin pie flavor, but not the texture of the pie (which I don't)!
Would you like to share a recipe today? Or maybe you got some sewing done?
