It’s Sweet Tooth Saturday and just two days ’til Halloween, so how could I not make a Jack-o-Lantern pumpkin cheesecake?? This is my basic pumpkin cheesecake recipe, with the addition of the happy Jack face that I made by combining melted chocolate with some chocolate cookie crumbs that I spread out and chilled before cutting into shapes.
Here’s another pic of Jack from another angle — I used a chocolate cookie crumb crust to give more of an “orange and black” appearance to the cheesecake.
I’ll keep this post short today because it’s snowing (in October!!) and the power keeps flickering on and off. It’s a heavy wet snow and the leaves are still on the trees, so limbs are snapping everywhere. I don’t know how long we’ll have power today, but I couldn’t let Sweet Tooth Saturday go by without sharing Mr. Jack o’Cheesecake!
And I couldn’t let Caturday slip by without a photo of Gary “Long-legs”! Gary is a very tall boy, and this photo gives you an idea of just how long his legs are.
