I found this amazing recipe on Luna Cafe. I've never liked pumpkin pie but of course it is a staple of Thanksgiving dinners so when my mom casually mentioned she might pick up a pumpkin pie at Sam's Club I quickly vetoed her. This was completely out of the question. "I can make something pumpkin," I said. So I began my hunt for something that involved pumpkin, but was a little less traditional. I love cheesecake (so does most of my family) so when I found this delicious looking dessert it was a no-brainer.
The pumpkin cheesecake portion had this wonderful aroma of fall with all the fresh spices and the white chocolate/pumpkin combo created a nice juxtaposition of flavors. I think it was a little creamier than I'm used to in cheesecake (and my marbling didn't turn out as beautiful as hers) but the flavor was still amazing and everyone loved it, even me (gasp)!
Check out some of her photos because they are great:) I have an amazing family and dinner was exceptional as usual. I still have no clue how to make all the traditional Turkey day foods (and I'm okay with that;) ) Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving! Jordan and I are off to Tofte for a little northern escape in a condo on Lake Superior. Stay tuned for our adventures in no-man's land.
