EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Essential Equipment: 9-inch pie pan; electric mixer or hand beater

Turtle Cheesecake Omit Cherry-Berry Topping. Drizzle 2 tablespoons each of caramel topping and hot fudge topping, warmed, over the baked and chilled cheesecake. Sprinkle with chopped pecans.

If you don't have a package of graham cracker crumbs, you can use 20 graham cracker squares and crush them yourself. Place a few crackers at a time in a plastic bag. Seal the bag, and crush crackers into fine crumbs with a rolling pin or bottle.

For an informal party with friends, try a dessert potluck. Invite your guests to prepare and share their favorite sweet treat. You can supply the beverages, dishes and one or two desserts, as well.
