Cheesecake Factory Pumpkin Cheesecake

Recipe By :Cheesecake Factory
Serving Size : 8 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Cheesecake

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
5 tablespoons butter -- melted
1 cup plus 1 tablespoon sugar
24 ounces cream cheese -- softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup canned pumpkin
3 eggs
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon allspice
whipped cream

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Make the crust by combining the graham cracker crumbs with the melted butter and 1 tablespoon sugar in a medium bowl. Stir well enough to coat all of the crumbs with the butter, but not so much as to turn the mixture into paste. Keep it crumbly. Press the crumbs onto the
bottom and about two-thirds of the way up the sides of a springform pan. You don't want the crust to form all of the way up the back of each slice of cheesecake. Bake the crust for 5 minutes, then set it aside until you are ready to fill it. In a large mixing bowl combine the cream cheese, 1 cup sugar, and
vanilla. Mix with an electric mixer until smooth. Add the pumpkin, eggs, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice and continue to beat until smooth and creamy. Pour the filling into the pan. Bake for 60 to 70 minutes. The top will turn a bit darker at this point. Remove from the oven and allow the cheesecake to cool.When the cheesecake has come to room temperature, put it into the refrigerator. When the cheesecake has chilled, remove the pan sides and cut the cake into 8 equal pieces. Use dental floss to make a clean cut. Serve with a generous portion of whipped cream on top.

1 C white sugar, or 1 1/3 C brown
1 C molasses
2 eggs
2 T vinegar
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp ginger
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp cloves

Beat shortening at high speed x 30 seconds. Add 1/2 of flour, sugar, molasses, egg, vinegar, baking powder, ginger, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves. Beat in remaining flour. (NOTE: you should really have a KitchenAid or similar high powered stand mixer to mix this recipe: the dough is stiff and heavy.)

Cover and chill well at least 3 hours.

Roll out on a lightly floured surface. Bake at 375 F until edges are lightly browned, about 5-8 minutes

People cut out 1/4" thick
Cutouts: 1/8" thick

Ice with Royal Icing and your choice of nonpareils.
Oooh, goodie! Thanks much!

wow, I've actually done this.

I would also eat out of the pot I cooked in so I didn't have to wash a plate too.

This is a good easy recipe. I got it in the stupid Kraft magazine that they keep sending me.

CHICKEN PARMESAN (for dummies)
-------------------------------------------

1 can (680 mL) your favourite spaghetti sauce
5 tbsp Parmesan, divided
6 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1 1/2 C shredded Mozzarella

Pour the spag sauce into your rectangular glass baking dish. Stir in 3 tbsp of the Parmesan. Put the chicken breasts in, turning them over to get nicely covered with sauce. Cover the dish with foil and put in a 375 F oven for a little over a half hour. Take out the dish and sprinkle on the remaining 2 tbsp Parmesan and the shredded Mozzarella. Bake for about 5 minutes more uncovered. Serve over spaghetti or vermicelli or something. Serves four with lunch leftovers.

Right!

Ok, I'll confess. I was caught by my daughter in the act of squirting choc syrup into my mouth and taking a swig of milk FROM THE CARTON.

I feel better now that I've gotten that off my chest.

Oh, believe me, when I was single:

Handful of popcorn -- pop into mouth
Add squirt of aerosol cheese spread - chew. Mmmm.

Yummy.

Or you can dip a spoon in chocolate frosting, then dip it in salted sunflower seed kernels (not the ones in the shell -- LOL). Eat off spoon. Repeat as needed. Vary frosting as desired.

Or:

One handful chow mein noodles, one handful chocolate chips. Cram both in mouth; chew. Do NOT talk while doing this; the effects are particularly horrible.

Or:

Square of chocolate, handful of raisins

Or:

Handful of croutons, cube of cheese.

It's quick! It's easy! It's disgusting! There's nobody home so live it up!
