Hello all! It has been a long time. This winter has been a long one for everyone but it has been especially difficult for our family in more ways than one. Hence the absence lately.
We celebrated hubby's birthday in early March with my dad, brother, and mother in law. I had been wanting to make a cheesecake (something I rarely make) and after reading hubs the cheesecakes on my Pinterest board he decided on an Amaretto Cheesecake. (My cheesecake board is called "Let them eat (cheese)cake" if you want to click my Pinterest link on the left.) My aunt is famous for her cheesecakes and hubby absolutely loves them so I thought it would be a good birthday treat.
The recipe is from Spicy Southern Kitchen here and it was a hit. My brother in particular thought it was awesome and he's not even much of a dessert eater, usually! The only changes I made to the recipe were I omitted the amaretto from the cake itself because I was baking it post call and we weren't able to pick it up beforehand. We would totally recommend this recipe for your next cheesecake-worthy event.
Fingers crossed it won't be long before my next post but you never know!
