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.
