Gingerbread Cheesecake

Top this cake with both Honey-Gingerbread and Molasses-Gingerbread Cookies. See Shaped Gingerbread Cookies for how to make the gingerbread men. Because you will use the molasses-gingerbread dough for the crust, you can make all the cookies from the same dough.

    I made this cheesecake today :) I followed the recipe exactly, it was flavourful and delicious. However, I think it should be baked a few mins longer, it was very gooey and it was a lot of prep time making the cookies first. I also think it could've used some more sugar, the taste of cream cheese and molasses was a little overpowering. I'll tweak the recipe a bit next time, but it was a very good cheesecake :) also it didn't crack!!

    I made this cheesecake for Thanksgiving and it was amazing it was packed with flavor! I used gingersnaps instead of making my own gingerbread and I topped each piece with a little whipped cream and some crushed gingersnaps. The time seemed really off to me in the recipe I ended up cooking it for an extra 35mins but it turned out perfect.
