This morning is the first day of Christmas break at our house and my daughter got me out of bed earlier than normal before the coffee had brewed (on automatic timer), and when the coffee finally did finish brewing, it was weaker than normal… on a morning that I needed it to be good and strong. Must be the end of the world.
But truly, It’s 12/21/12 and so far, there’s been no apocalypse up here in Alaska. Christmas is drawing near and several of you have been waiting for this Peppermint Cheesecake with Oreo Crust that I made for our Christmas Dinner Party. So without further ado, or apocalyptic distractions, the recipe for this creamy, fluffy peppermint cheesecake with chocolatey crust topped with crushed candy canes and melted semi-sweet chocolate. Drool.
