RECIPE: Almond Praline Cheesecake

roselin32November 19, 2004

Years ago I made this when my youngest sister and her husband came to visit and is has been her favorite ever since.

3/4c graham cracker crumbs

1/2c slivered almonds, toasted and finely chopped

1/4c sugar

1/4c butter, melted

3 (8oz) pk cream cheese, softened

1 (14 oz) can CONDENSED milk

3 eggs

1 tsp almond extract

Praline topping

Preheat oven to 300°. Combine crumbs, almonds, sugar, and butter; press firmly on the bottom of a 9" springform pan or a 9x13" pan. In a large mixing bowl beat cream cheese until fluffy. Gradually beat in condensed milk until smooth. Add eggs and extract, mixing well. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 55-60 minutes or until set.

Cool and top with `praline topping:

In small saucepan combine 1/3c firmly packed dark brown sugar and 1/3c whipping cream. Cook and stir until sugar dissolves. Simmer 5 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in 1/2c chopped toasted slivered almonds. Spoon evenly over cheesecake. (Double for 9x13" pan and simmer for 10-12 minutes)

Chill cheesecake after adding topping and refrigerate leftovers.

Just to make sure, you mean sweetened, condensed milk like Eagle Brand, right?

Yes, not evaporated milk. Here every grocery store has its own brand of condensed milk now so I just buy that but the original was Eagle Brand. (More than you wanted to know, I'm sure! LOL)
