A Little Monster: Creme Brulee Cheesecake

This recipe jumped right out of the book and slapped me in the face.

"You better make me or I will have to hurt you."

I really dislike food threats. But I obey...

A friend of mine (Marsha Baker) gave me some old issues of Taste of Home magazines to go through and clip recipes if I wanted. And yes, I wanted.

Look at this, I'm asking for Betty's help again. This is the crust to the cheesecake.

I didn't have any toffee bits, so I substituted monster cookie mix for the toffee. It worked great.

I poured it into my little nifty mini chopper and chopped it up fine.

When this cheesecake comes out of the oven, the toffee bits are suppose to be applied right away. I think they are suppose to melt or something.

This is fabulous, and I am so glad I have a whole 13 x 9 inch pan of it to eat. I don't even think I want to share with my's all mine!!

A piece of advice; Make sure you pay attention to the directions closely. Do not add the full 2 1/2 tsp. vanilla to the crust like I did....Over use of vanilla is okay though. I can't even tell the difference.
It's cheesecake for crying out loud, I'm not going to complain about the extra vanilla in the crust...

  1. sounds really really good! Tasty photo!

  2. By Golly - I'm gonna have to make this...but I'll have to be sure someone else is around to share it with me, cause I'm sure I could devour it by myself too! I have everything but the toffee bits, but that can be fixed real quick. Your pictures are marvy - Thank you so much for sharing - and for the tip about the vanilla! It's so easy to make a mistake like that, huh?
    Have a great day!

  3. wow this is basically an amazing idea! Brilliant!
