Maple Syrup Cheesecake

One of my first themed boards I created on Pinterest was a Cheesecake board. I’m obsessed with cheesecake and cannot resist a piece. I make it every once a while since it isn’t the friendliest dessert on my waistline. I figure I can indulge every once in a while though.

I decided to see what Maple Syrup Cheesecake would be like. I picked up a bottle of real Maple Syrup a few weeks ago and we needed to use it up before we move. This dessert finished off the bottle.

Oh my is it good! The crust is made from crushed maple cream cookies. I normally use graham cracker crusts for cheesecake, but I figured cookies would work too.

The cheesecake filling is smooth, creamy and not overly sweet. It’s a basic baked cheesecake filling but instead of adding in white sugar, I used maple syrup. I also drizzled some maple syrup on top to finish off each piece.

If you like add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and drizzle maple syrup on top. Delish!
