RIPE FOR SEDUCTION
THIS TEXTURAL TREAT TOPS A CRUNCHY BASE WITH A SILKY FILLING
This blockbuster dessert is a bit naughty. I’m always seduced by a well-made cheesecake rather than a deconstructed, fermented flight of fancy festooned with flowers and superfluous soil. All successful desserts play on the appeal of contrasting textures. The crunchy base and contrasting filling (thank you, pumpkin) provide a double bonus — both a failsafe cheesecake and chocolate recipe for your repertoire.
