Cheesecakes & Cheesecake Concoctions

Cheesecake is a sweet dessert consisting of one or more layers. The main, and thickest layer, consists of a mixture of soft, fresh cheese (typically cream cheese or ricotta), eggs, and sugar; if there is a bottom layer it often consists of a crust or base made from crushed cookies or graham crackers. It may be baked or unbaked. Cheesecake may be flavored or topped with fruit, whipped cream, nuts, cookies, fruit sauce, or chocolate syrup. Wikipedia

Cranberry Rosemary Cheese Spread

Thanks to my sister for finding this wonderful creamy, tangy spread that’s a bit different and perfect for the Holidays! The dried fruit makes it festive and adds a little sweetness and that flavor just bounces off the savory rosemary and garlic.

Two Layer Dulce de Leche Pumpkin Pie

Another pie? Why not!? Because I already made my Fave Pumpkin Pie last week, and then a Caramel Creme Pumpkin Pie extravaganza. So for actual Thanksgiving? A Dulce de Leche Pumpkin Pie. The bottom layer is a lush cream cheese & the top, a more sedate pumpkin pie layer. The Dulce de Leche Whipped Cream? It stole the show.
