Dennys Food and Recipes: Thanksgiving: Layered Pumpkin Cheesecake: From Denny: This is the perfect holiday table dessert! It's so showy it's sure to impress. Three layers of tasty goodness are the gingersnap cookie crust as it's sturdy foundation to hold the spiced pumpkin cheese layer that is marbled with a vanilla layer.
Like most big cheesecakes, this one should be baked in a springform pan, where the cake cools in the pan for several hours before you remove the sides of the pan. If you have never used a springform pan, it's so easy it will make you laugh, definitely nothing to be intimidated about at all.
Like any tasty cheesecake, this one is rich in calories too, so a small serving would be welcomed by most. At a dinner party I like to cut a normal to small sized slice, placing it on one plate and then encourage couples to share so people don't have to feel guilty about busting their diet plan. After all, the whole point of entertaining is for people to enjoy their tasty treats!...

Also, please remember that October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, keeping these women in your thoughts and prayers. Here's my latest Denny Lyon Gifts design (at Cafe Press) to honor all the fabulous women and their supporters fighting this disease.
This design first started off as one of my photos of those favorite hot pink azalea blooms, in addition to many other filters, employing a kaleidoscope filter to create this abstract medallion effect. This design reminds me of how our beauty is always there, no matter what form it takes. Of course, here in Louisiana, we take creative "French" license with English spellings. :) The thought bubble is to remind others to support these women on their journey to wellness. Lots of other styles of t-shirts and other products to enjoy too. The link takes you to the page of all the products featuring this design. Thanks for visiting!
