Natural Ginger Cheesecake



Here is a great recipe idea from the makers of Truwhip....

Ingredients
1 1/4 cup graham cracker crumbs (for crust)
5 tablespoons butter, melted
8 ounces cream cheese
1/3 cup sugar
1 teaspoons vanilla 
1/2 cup candied ginger, finely chopped
8 ounces mascarpone cheese
pinch of nutmeg 10 ounces truwhip, whipped topping, thawed
gingersnap crumbs (for garnish)

Directions
Combine graham cracker crumbs with melted butter and mix well. Press into a 10-inch spring-form pan evenly. Set aside in the freezer until use.

Whip cream cheese, sugar, vanilla, nutmeg and candied ginger into electric mixing bowl until smooth. Add the mascarpone cheese and truwhip and whip again until fully mixed and fluffy. Spoon mixture into the gingersnap crust, filling to the top. Sprinkle with ground gingersnap crumbs for garnish. Chill in the freezer.

Thaw slightly before serving.  

Serves 8

Sounds delicious, I love mascarpone cheese! You can also fake the mascarpone if you can't find it or don't want to spend the $, by using cream cheese whipped with a little heavy cream!
