1 1/2 teaspoons
1 1/2 teaspoons
egg yolk, beaten
3 (8 ounce) packages
cream cheese, softened
grated lemon zest
grated orange zest
cooked and mashed sweet potatoes
Very good and not too sweet. I replaced the crust with a gingersnap/graham cracker crust.
Either we didn't follow recipe completely or something was missing. It just didn't taste like cheesecake. Tasted more like pumpkin pie! Maybe too much flour or not enough heavy cream.
This was a good recipe; I made this for Thanksgiving dessert. The biggest challenge was the crust--it was difficult to spread the crust on the bottom of the pan, and then later on, the sides. I think it could have cooked longer than the suggested 70 minutes. I know the recipe said cook until set, but I thought it was set at 70 minutes. Would recommend this only to experienced cooks due to the crust factor!
The orange and lemon zests were the enjoyment of the cheesecake as they 'cut' the sweetness of the sweet potatoes. An excellent finished product that was light to the taste and tummy.
Directions presented the entire picture and were easy to follow.
I brought the cheesecake to work for 'testing.' Nary a crumb left and two requests for the recipe.
Great product ...
i made this potato cheesecake for a last minute christmas party and the whole family devouered it. i should have made more. yes it might look like alot of work but its real easy to make as well as fun. i completely recomend this recipe for everyone to try. the crust alone is scrumptious.
I made this recipe for a farewell party. At first nobody wanted to try a slice because of the sweet potatoes, but at the end of the party everyone was asking for the recipe. I loved it myself and will add it to my favorite to make list. Derril
Love this cheesecake. I made it once 4 years ago and everyone loved it.
I have made this recipe several times and everyone I know loves it even a good friend who does not like sweet potatoes! The crust does pose a challenge so the past couple of times I used a pre-made graham cracker crust which yields three pies. I also added a little bit of lemon juice (not too much). I highly recommend this recipe.
