Marbled Pumpkin Cheesecake

Reviewed: Nov. 25, 2012
I've never written a review until now. This is a terrific recipe! I couldn't find any pecans in the grocery store, so I substituted finely chopped walnuts in the gingersnap crust which was phenomenal! I doubled the recipe to take to a Thanksgiving gathering and baked it in a 9 x 13 pan. I generally add a little less sugar than dessert recipes call for and have never had a complaint yet. I also omitted the ginger just because I didn't have any. The top did crack in a few places because I couldn't figure out how to do a water bath for a 9 x 13 pan, but naturally that didn't change the taste. I thought it tasted a great deal like pumpkin pie with a hint of cream cheese.

Buttertart Squares

Reviewed: Dec. 31, 2011
I'm honestly not sure what a "butter tart" is, particularly since there is no butter other than in the crust. This was WAY too sweet! (I should have read the reviews about adjusting the sugar before baking it, especially after I kept wondering about the quantity of 1 1/2 cups.) While I followed the recipe, I was intrigued with the optional additions and decided to try adding butterscotch morsels. Unfortunately, this probably added to the sweetness as well. This seemed more like candy than a tart/cookie/cake. It was easy to make, I had no problem with getting it out of the pan and it did not fall apart when I did remove a piece. I definitely would not make it again.
