Low Carb Peanut Butter Cheesecake

Low Carb Peanut Butter CheesecakeLow Carb Peanut Butter Cheesecake With Chocolate Ganache. I know the name of this is long but the recipe is very easy.  I think any cheesecake can be an elegant and easy dessert assuming you plan ahead as cheesecake get better the longer you keep it in the refrigerator. Trust me they don’t last long.

B-52Long ago my husband’s favorite drink was a B-52 which is made with Kahlúa, Baileys Irish Cream & Gran Marnier.  The drink is made in a pony or shot glass using a cherry or the back of a spoon to “layer” each liqueur, heaviest first etc.  When done properly they are a pretty visual.  I digress, but one day I decided to make a B-52 cheesecake for him and it turned out looking like a color-muted version of the drink…and good?…Oh yeah. The idea is to show you that you can make just about any flavor cheesecake you can conger up.  You will need the larger crust recipe from Pie Crusts For Most Any Pie Two Sizes

  3. Most any really good tasty dessert has lots of calories but in case you can't tell from my recipes I do not count calories and...I do not eat dessert every day...I can't. With all the other fat in my diet I am most often too full.
  4. If you get to the point you are sick of this stuff (you won't) it freezes well.
