That does sound like a delicious cheesecake, Addie.
This cheesecake is VERY rich. My grandson fell in love with it when he was just a kid. I made it every year for the family. So since his birthday is right after the holidays, I started to make it just for him. The rest of the family gets a large pumpkin cheesecake.
My GS does not need all the calories this cheesecake has. That is why I have been wanting to make the smaller one. And it is more personal when it is small.
As for sharing? His father has a sweet tooth that is not to be believed. If he had his way, he would have dessert for his main course and then another different one for his dessert. The first year I made the Chocolate Chip CC, my GS was still living at home. His father would sneak out a couple of times during the night and take a large piece of the cheesecake. So I made a second one for my GS for his birthday. Thus a tradition was started.
He now lives downstairs with his fiancé and I am sure he will share it with her.
Illegitimi non carborundum!
