I can’t remember when I first tried cheesecake but when I did I fell in love. All the recipes I ever seen called for putting it in the oven and baking it. To me that was just way to long to wait, but one day I will bake a cheesecake. I wI anted a recipe that fairly quick and easy, then I found one similar to the one below and began making my own creations. I have made this recipe for so long that I no longer need to look at the recipe.
This weekend I decided to make cheesecake with the cream cheese I had in the fridge. I usually make plain cheese cake with a berry topping or chocoalte cheesecake. This time I decided to add marshmallows and nuts, since I had a bag of both n the cupboard. I was going to make Rocky Road cheesecake, only I was missing one very important ingredient, the graham cracker crumbs. I sent my hubby to the store to pick some up. He called from the store to let me know that he couldn’t find them or they didn’t have none. The only thing I could think of was the actual crackers and not crumbs. I had never made the pie crust that way before. Worked out well and I will probably continue this way for the next cheesecakes
