My family requests this dessert each Thanksgiving. For a change of pace, I sometimes use cinnamon graham crackers instead of plain ones. —Melissa Davis, Clermont, Florida

"One of the many cheese cakes I made for my daughters wedding reception. Instead of walnuts I used pecans. Our guests loved it. I have made it several times since."
