No matter how sparse your spice collection is, chances are high that you have cinnamon on hand. Which works out well if like me you crave cinnamon flavors on a regular basis. Put your cinnamon to use and make a snickerdoodle cheesecake!
Last week I was meandering the aisles of Whole Foods, as I love to do, and discovered cinnamon graham crackers. Despite being a total honey graham cracker lover, I had never tried the cinnamon variety. This felt like a huge oversight on my part so of course I bought a box to rectify this mistake immediately.
Since I always have cream cheese in my fridge, I thought I’d put these new cinnamon graham crackers to work in the crust of a snickerdoodle cheesecake. I needed to whip a dessert up for book club so this felt like a great way to accomplish both items on my to-do list. My coworkers were pretty unhappy that I brought in the cheesecake and didn’t share with them so I’m thinking I might need to whip up another batch very soon.
Have you ever tried snickerdoodle cookies? They are delicious sugar cookies rolled in cinnamon. While no one online seems to agree on where the name came from, there’s no questions around how delicious they are.
One last thought before I leave you with this incredibly easy recipe. This cheesecake is just thin enough that you can enjoy without guilt but substantial enough that you feel satisfied after eating a slice. And who doesn’t like guilt-free sweets?
