6. I make one for Thanksgiving and Christmas

Oh how the fam loves it. It's a recipe I've tweeked from an old Better Homes & Gardens Golden Anniversary cook book. I think the key is the homemade cookie crust. We're not fans of graham cracker crust

I wish I could give everyone of you a piece

Edit to add...very nice display MrScorpio, though we prefer the sauces on the side. Pineapple coconut sauce is my choice. My sons go for blueberry lemon

9. If you make a pumpkin one

try crunching up some ginger snaps along with graham crackers for the crust.

15. I'm not surprised

Since cheesecake worship is expressed forbidden in the Burkina Faso constitution.

Look it up.

19. I make the world's best New York Style baked chizcake.

Recipe from a food processor recipe cookbook.


Whip it up in the Cuisinart, and put down graham cracker crumbs in a springform pan. Bake.
I also can put cocoa in 1/2 of the goo and make a chocolate swirl chizcake.

20. this thread is useless w/o recipes

get crackin people!

ill start

Blue Ribbon Sweet Potato Pie

FILLING
2 medium sweet potatoes
1/2 and 3/4 cups white sugar, divided
1/2 cup heavy cream
3/8 cup evaporated milk
1/2 stick butter, melted
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 9" graham cracker pie shell

TOPPING
1 egg
1 cup brown sugar
1 tbs melted butter
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup crushed pecans

1) Peel & cut sweet potatoes. Add 1/2 cup sugar and cream. Cook uncovered in casserole dish at 350 until tender, 20 to 30 min. Check to ensure it doesnt dry out & burn. If it dries, tent with aluminum foil or add more cream.

2) Mash potatoes but leave some chunks. Keep 2 cups, discard rest. Add remaining 3/4 cup sugar, evaporated milk, melted butter, eggs & vanilla. Mix thoroughly & pour into pie crust.

3) Bake 25 to 35 min at 350, until center is firm.

4) To make topping, combine and mix all ingredients and pour onto pie. Return to oven for 10 min or until topping is browned.

Tips - serve with whipped cream (whip 1 cup heavy cream til frothy, add 1 tsp vanilla & 1 tbs sugar, whip til peaks form)

Its not too sweet like some southern pies. Its just right. Also, this is 10x better when eaten cold the next day!
