Candy canes, a seasonal favorite, add yummy flavor as well as festive color to our delectable peppermint cheesecake. We think it works especially well with our graham cracker crust.
Add 1 tsp peppermint extract to basic recipe with vanilla. Reserve 1 cup batter. Pour remaining into prepared pan. Add ½ cup coarsely chopped hard peppermint candies and 1-2 drops red food coloring to reserved batter; swirl into batter in pan. Bake as directed. Garnish chilled cake just before serving with crushed peppermint candies, if desired.
