Ginger-Brandy Cheesecake

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by ChefRed

Comes from Moosewood cookbook. I love Gingersnap cookies and they are the starting point for this desert. Sounds delicious and different than usual cheesecake. Can't wait to make. Placing here for safe keeping.

My Husband & Family LOVED this! I added some extra brandy for the adults as a topping!
