This recipe was tested with Nestle La Lechera dulce de leche; look for it in the international foods section. If using Eagle Brand dulce de leche (caramel flavored sauce), thicken according to package directions before using.
Sweet pears and rich caramel never tasted better than they do in this pleasing fall cheesecake. The arrangement of sliced pears on top of the dessert is sure to make a stunning impression. —Fay Brown, Wichita Falls, Texas
What did I do when I couldn't decide between two of my favorite desserts? Combined them! This snickerdoodle-blondie hybrid is even better with my other favorite ingredient: caramel. —Niki Plourde, Gardner, Massachusetts
