From www.TopSecretRecipes.com I don't know where I got this pumpkin cheesecake recipe. I have made this cheesecake around Thanksgiving, when the pumpkin spices are calling! It is the same as Todd Wilbur's Top Secret recipe.
I took this recipe from a Bon Appetit recipe. I like to bake cheesecakes at a lower temperature than most recipes call for--so I lower the baking temperature, use a water bath for moisture and let the cheesecake cool more slowly in the cooling oven. You get less cracks and the texture is creamier and smoother.
I was searching the 'net for low carb. cheesecakes 'cuz my dad is on The Atkins diet. I came across this one and made it right away. My dad was so happy and he really enjoyed it, he even shared it the next day with my grandma and friends who are also on the Atkins diet.
My husband is in love with the vanilla bean cheesecake from TGI Fridays, so I was sent on a search to find a similar recipe. He says this is very good, and nearly the same as their recipe. One warning: He doesn't eat the crust, so I don't know if that is exactly the same as their recipe. This will take a lot of time to make, but is worth it.
I got this recipe from a local grocery store where I take cooking classes. I made this cheesecake a couple of days ago for a party and it was so easy and fast. People couldn't believe that it was homemade.
This is yummy & a nice change from the usual chocolate, cherry, etc. cheesecakes.The crust is a nice change also from the graham & chocolate ones. A tip that was listed is that you can make this ahead of time, pop it in the freezer,ready to serve for up to 3 months! Store right in the springform pan covered in plastic wrap and just thaw in the refrigerator when ready to use.
" A finalist in the 2001 Nestle Toll House Share the Very Best recipe contest, this dessert was submitted by Audra Burtch of Chandler, Arizona. This family favorite is a marbled cheesecake topped with a decadent combination of pecans, chocolate morsels and caramel and chocolate syrups. "
An elderly client of my husband used to travel to Toronto at least once a year and he always brought my daughters a bag of chocolate turtles as a present. After he passed away I adopted this recipe to remember him by. My girls call this Marvin's Cheesecake.
This was a best selling dessert for Ruggles Grill, in Houston. It's a little different than some peanut butter cheesecakes--very good---with that winning combo, chocolate and peanut butter! Hope you enjoy.
