I made this without the pecans, adding orange extract instead of vanilla and finishing with ganache. An easy recipe to modify, it was a hit at my family Christmas party, and is sure to be a repeat.


I made this for church potluck and the plate was cleaned up with rave reviews!

lil prep on the prairie

I don't usually flop on recipes from this website.... However this was a flop. I followed the recipe exactly and it wasn't the cheesecake i had in mind. I should have known because it looks so simple and easy. I like New York style cheesecake and this wasn't it. I have chickens so I have very large eggs that were laid that day usually so it's possible that could be the case... But this was eggy and not cream cheese enough. I won't make this again!
