THIS! This cheesecake. This pumpkin bourbon sea salt caramel toffee cheesecake.
My Thanksgiving table is not complete without this cheesecake. About 7 or 8 years ago, I wanted to amp up the ol’ pumpkin pie tradition, and this is now a Thanksgiving staple. Hard to do in my family where the same recipes have been served since . . . well, like ever. As long as as I have known anyway.
And please, save some leftovers for breakfast. I swear it tastes better then than at any other time.
Thanksgiving is all the things I love wrapped up into one amazing package of family, friends, and over-indulging in food and bevs. And I’m sad this year is over. Even if the Packers lost to the Lions. I think I love it so much because it’s without the materialism and commercialism that sneakily weasels it’s way into other holidays.
Thanksgiving is about coming together with the people you love, sharing a meal, and being thankful.
And I’m damn thankful for this cheesecake. Period.
And all you people I love😉.
