    IMPRESSIVE HOLIDAY DESSERT !

  • ldetter2014 |

    AWESOME - one of the best cheesecakes I have ever made!! I didnt have the peppermint extract - but it turned out PERFECT!!

    I made this cheesecake for a New Year's Eve party--it was the hit of the party, up against contenders like a chocolate-Kahlua cake and flan. This dessert is outstanding--someone said even better than Cheesecake Factory! A little time-consuming--I do not know where they got 35 minutes for prep--but well worth it. Definitely a keeper.
