Another Pie Post

Tonight I am having a get together.  HD will be 34 on Tuesday, yikes my man is getting closer to 40!  I am making baked chicken, fresh green beans, a sweet potato and apple casserole and a pie, a Turtle cheese  cake actually, is cheese cake, cake or pie you cut it like pie not cake, I think it's in the pie catagory and since I already gave this post the title of Another Pie Post, I am calling cheese cake pie, ok on with it already!

I decided that if I am going to eat this very fattening cheese cake you all should too, so please get to the store and make this with me, your friends will be thrilled your husband will be so happy (until swim suit season) and you will love it!

Turtle Cheesecake

1 3/4 cups chocolate gram crackers crumbs
1/3 cups butter melted
3 8oz cream cheese softened
1 14oz can sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cups sugar
3 large eggs
3 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
2 tablespoons chocolate syrup
2 tablespoons caramel ice cream topping
1/2 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 300 degrees.  Grease 9 inch springform pan.

Crust:  Combine crumbs and butter, press onto bottom and 1 inch up side of pan.

Filling: beat cream cheese and milk until smooth, add sugar, eggs, lime juice and vanilla continue to beat.  Now microwave the 1 1/2 cups of chocolate chips for 1 minute stir and microwave in 20 second intervals until the morsels are melted.  Take 2 cups of the batter and mix it with the chocolate.  Alternately spoon the batters into crust, beginning and ending with yellow batter. Bake 70 -75 minutes or until edge is set and center moves slightly.  Cool in pan on wire rack for 10 minutes, then run knife around edge and let cool completely.  Drizzle syrups on top, sprinkle with nuts and morsels and refrigerate for at least 3 hours remove side of pan before serving.  

Eat and enjoy!  I am off to fold laundry, clean toilets and pick up toys!

Happy Saturday!
