I made a red puri squash cheesecake with a ginger lime crust for thanksgiving that ended up being the favorite dish that I made. I'd like to make another cheesecake for a christmas party but am having trouble coming up with something that would be appropriately christmas-y.
Cheesecake with candied fruit and nut topping
Figgy pudding cheesecake
Gingerbread crust cheesecake
White chocolate and cranberry cheesecake
Maple cheesecake with a rosemary whipped cream
I've made a Cranberry Swirl Cheesecake with Cranberry-Raspberry Compote from Bon Appetit a couple of times and it is excellent (looks really pretty too). It's in the new Bon Appetit Desserts cookbook (which is a fantastic book) but is also available on epicurious,.com http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/foo...
This is really good cheesecake. The recipe is missing the correct temp for baking the cheesecake itself (certainly not 400 like the crust!). I wished it had a little more glaze too, the flavour was elusive. I might double the glaze recipe next time and use some to plate or pass. But the base was great and I liked that it used pantry/liquor cabinet items rather than eggnog like the CHOW recipe.
