1. Gingerbread Cheesecake
What you need:
¾ cup gingersnaps, crushed
3 tbsp melted butter
An 8 oz package softened cream cheese
An 8 oz tub thawed whipped topping
2 or 3 tbsp molasses
½ tsp each of ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg
¼ cup confectioners’ sugar
Additional toppings such as sprinkles, whipped cream, or gingerbread cookies
How to make:
In a pie plate sprinkle the crushed gingersnaps. Drizzle the butter over the cookies and press to make a crust. Place in the freezer. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the whipped topping, cream cheese, spices, molasses, and the confectioners’ sugar until well blended. Remove the pie crust from the freezer and fill with the topping. Add on other desired toppings. Cover and refrigerate for at least four hours before serving. It is best to make this the night before and let refrigerate overnight before serving to your family and your friends.
