This pepperminty cheesecake says "Christmas" at first sight and first bite. The recipe earned me a dairy producer's scholarship. Now, it regularly wins compliments at seasonal parties and teas.

I made this last year and my family loved it! They are asking specifically for this recipe for the holidays. Delicious.

This was a very pretty cheesecake. It was ok, but it really wasn't sweet enough. The actual cake itself was not nearly as good as I expected.

This was a very good recipe, but instead of garnishing the cheesecake with peppermint candies, I crushed up some peppermint candies and actually put them in the cheesecake batter. VERY good!
