Mango Cheesecake With A Caribbean Flair

Pemos Restaurant
Camps, Nevis

Ingredients:

1 Store bought Graham Cracker crust
3 Large ripe mangoes, diced
3 Packages Philadelphia cream cheese, softened (8 Ounces, NOT the light non-sense)
1¼ Cups sugar
1 Teaspoon (REAL) vanilla extract
4 Large AA eggs

Cooking Method:

Process mangoes in food processor (#ad) or blender until puréed.  With an electric mixer, beat Philadelphia cream cheese, 1¼ cups sugar, and vanilla extract until fluffy.  Beat in eggs 1 at a time, mixing  just until yellow disappears after each addition.  Stir in puréed mango.

Pour batter into prepared crust.  Bake at 325º for 1 hour and 25 minutes.  Cool in pan on a wire rack for at least one hour. Cover and chill for at least eight hours.

Garnish with fresh mango slices, fresh strawberries, and fresh mint if so desired

Author’s Note:  This cheesecake dessert goes down really nice with a glass of Guavaberry Liqueur and Espresso (#ad) :)
