This candy corn cheesecake takes practice to get it just right, but once you do it’s sure to leave a lasting impression for your festive fall dinner.
The savory sweets pastry uses crushed graham crackers as a base that is mixed with cinnamon. The layering effect for the cake is the most difficult part. The sour cream and heavy cream filling must be separated into three sections using a baking pan, bowl and plastic cup. Yellow and red food coloring is added to the middle and exterior layer to match the colors on the sugary sweets.
The actual candy for the candy corn cheesecake is not used within the batter, but to decorate the outside of the dessert once it is chilled.
