Cheesecake with Caramelized Pineapple.

Cheesecake with Caramelized Pineapple.

I received some cream cheese last week and I knew some cheesecakes were in my near future.  As in, I made one last Friday and it was superb, even if I do say so myself. 

Light, creamy, and just enough sweet to take it over the top. 

I made it for NPA's 17th Anniversary, and the ladies devoured it.   The Anniversary party is usually a fundraiser as well, and this year they raised money for the local Humane Society.  A great cause.

 The process - Caramelizing the pineapple

 Resting and waiting to decorate

 And the cheesecake is ready to bake, next time I'll smooth out the parchment paper a little.

Baked, cooled and ready to decorate, paper removed and trimmed.

 Just a couple more pictures before you get to the recipe.

Ready for the closeup?

And the finished slice, and believe me when I say I could have gone for seconds.
