In July, for my one-year anniversary, I reached out to you guys for recipes that you want to see in year two. You guys had some incredible ideas, but one really stood out to me: cheesecake!

I have not made a cheesecake in YEARS. I made these cheesecake bars last fall but not a full, traditional cheesecake.

I don’t know if you’ve noticed but I don’t make a whole lot of full cakes or pies. I am much bigger fan of making bars or bites or cupcakes.

There are two reasons for this: (1) they are so much easier to make and (2) they’re much more fun to serve a crowd. I loath the first cut of any pie or cake because it never comes out perfectly. So I just cut out that fear by making the food into rectangular or square shapes.

Which reminds me…stay tuned for a slab pie. It only seems right for me to feature one so I’ll try to get one to you this fall/winter.

Okay, back to the cheesecake.

When you all requested a cheesecake, I just new I had to get one on the blog. The holidays are coming up so I knew a cheesecake would be the perfect treat to serve at Thanksgiving or Christmas.

And with Halloween just around the corner, too, I wanted to feature a cheesecake that you can make with all that leftover candy.

Behold…the Snickers Cheesecake!
