Imperfect and Delectable Brownie Caramel Cheesecake 30


So, I had a birthday this year.  Can you believe it? Yep, it comes around one time a year. I made my own dessert for my birthday: a brownie caramel cheesecake. It was delicious!  I ate more of this than anyone in my household, and I didn’t feel one bit bad!

Although the pictures didn’t turn out great, there is nothing wrong with the recipe!  I just didn’t have it refrigerated enough when I cut it! And, I wasn’t going to wait!! 🙂

The other thing I love about this cheesecake recipe is that it only calls for 8 ounces of cream cheese, not 32 ounces.  Now, when I go to the Cheesecake Factory, I expect 32 ounces of cream cheese in my cheesecake, but when I am home…I hate to see that cream cheese go to waste.  Who can truly eat a 32 ounce cream cheese cheesecake by themselves? Not even I can.

This is truly an indulgence, and we all deserve one, at least every 40 years. 🙂
