i love making anything that includes cream cheese.... i am probably an addict. i had originally planned to make a toffee cheesecake for sean's birthday but we had some left over birthday cake from his surprise (success!) party that we decided to hold off on the cheesecake for a bit. we had a few friends over for chicken tortilla soup so i made some cheesecake for dessert. i cheated with this one and used a pre-made pie shell... worth it when you don't have a ton of time.
toffe crunch cheesecake
2 packages of cream cheese, softened (total 16 ounces)
1/2 cup light brown sugar firmly packed
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped Heath bar (can substitute for Heath bits)
1. preheat oven to 350.
2. combine sugar, cream cheese, and vanilla. beat on medium speed until all combined.
3. add eggs one at a time and scrape bowl in between.
4. stir in 3/4 cup of chopped Heath bars and pour into pie shell.
5. sprinkle remaining bits on top and put in the oven for 35 to 40 minutes. cool in refrigerator for 3 hours or overnight. keep leftover cheesecake in fridge after serving.
i hope you enjoy!
just a thought.
