Bourbon Pumpkin Cheesecake and Pumpkin Chocolate Chip & Dried Cherries Cookes: It’s a Pumpkin-Baking Extravaganza!

Recipe: (1) A bourbon-pumpkin cheesecake with a bourbon-sour-cream topping on a graham cracker and pecan crust (picture to come tomorrow). (2) Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies with dried cherries.

It’s been a long weekend. And I needed something fun and relaxing to do. If you know me, and I assume you do if you’re reading this blog, you know that for me, this was the perfect opportunity to bake. But not just one baked good, oh no, tonight was a double header, my friends. A delicious delicious PUMPKIN double header. The first round tonight included a bourbon pumpkin cheesecake, complete with a bourbon-infused sour cream topping. (I’d like to make a shout out here to my friend, Ravi, for adding Jack Daniels to my surprisingly large collection of alcohol [it’s all for baking, Mom. I swear!] and allowing me to make said wonderful treat). The second round tonight consisted of a pumpkin chocolate chip cookie with (surprise!) dried cherries. But more on the surprise later.
