    Rita~'s Note:

    I came up with this version of my creamy cheese cake just for the holidays! You can use extract instead of amaretto. You can also use any of the hard squashs as butternut or sweet potato thats been baked and mashed smooth.You can also bake in a water bath by adding 1/2 inch of water to pan. Be careful removing cake when cooked if there''s any water left.

      I made this for a dinner party for 12 last night and everyone loved it! I used sour cream and amaretto in the cheesecake, and also used amaretto in the topping. I think I ended up using 3 tbs of amaretto in the cheesecake, and 1 tbs in the topping. I used 2 1/4 cups of gingersnap cookies and no almonds (allergic) for the crust and it came out great. This was my first cheesecake I've ever made and although it was a little time intensive; it was not difficult to make. Very pretty with the topping; will definitely make again!

      I love the shorbread cookies instead of the usual graham cracker crust. I used the sour cream and the amararetto instead of the extract and I loved the flavorings in this cheesecake. thank you for sharing this recipe. I can't wait to make this for thanksgiving.
