Gingerbread Cheesecake!

Hello everyone!

I wanted to use up the last of the cream cheese that was in the fridge that was left over from the wedding so Chris and I decided we wanted to try and make a cheesecake!

I used the Cheesecake recipe from my Brownie Bottom Cheesecake. It's really simple to make!

2 8oz. packages of Cream Cheese (softened)
3/4 cup Sugar
2 eggs
1 Tablespoon of Torani Gingerbread syrup

(I would suggest using more. The gingerbread flavor was not as prominent or noticeable as I would have liked)

1 shortbread crust (you can really use any kind of crust you want!)

  1. Pre-Heat oven to 350F (176C)

  2. Mix Cream cheese, sugar, eggs and syrup together until smooth

  3. Taste mixture to make sure it is Gingerbread-y enough for you (lol)

  4. Pour mixture into crust

  5. Bake for 40 - 45 minutes (the cheesecake will more than likely NOT go brown around the edges unless you cook it for longer)

The good thing about this is that it is not as rich as a normal store bought cheesecake is. You don't feel as guilty eating a piece! It's not overly sweet either.

Mind you the center of this is white and the top is only slightly yellow. The reason is cracked is because Chris put it in the fridge without covering it and before it was fully cooled D:

These aren't terribly fantastic pictures, but I think you get the point :P

Let me know if you try this recipe out! I would absolutely LOVE to know how it came out! You can play around with the flavors as well!

Disclaimer: I received the Torani Gingerbread Syrup for free from Torani and Shespeaks up. This is a sponsored post on that aspect. That however does not affect my opinion! All opinions are 100% my own and nothing will ever change that! I am not being paid by either company to do this blog post! 

Ps. Yes, I know I am supposed to be starting a diet. However, I am waiting on something so I have not exactly started it. HOWEVER, because of that, I am NOT going to start baking. :) Chris or others in my family will be the testers! :P So, since it is the Christmas season, be prepared for a lot of indulgent posts! :P I'm making my Mom's Orange Creamsicle cookies this year, among a few other things. I will be sticking to a diet however in the next week or so.
