This has been my go to cheesecake recipe for years. Any reason why I can't sub a chocolate crumbcrust and add peppermint extract for the Peppermint Cheesecake that has been requested for Christmas dinner?
A slice of this cake is like Christmas on a plate. It’s so full of Southern holiday cheer and seasonal flavor that we want to break out in Christmas carols, and we cannot get enough of the chocolate and peppermint duo in its creamy cheesecake form.
These delicate sweet meringues become a refreshing treat. This vegan version of the French classic uses aquafaba, the leftover cooking liquid from chickpeas or other light-colored beans, in place of egg whites.
