    Pumpkin Cheesecake with Oat-Walnut Crust

    This luscious reduced-fat cheesecake, with a crust
    full of nutritional goodies, is really a very creamy
    pumpkin pie that easily could become a traditional
    favorite on Thanksgiving or any special family dinner.

    * 2/3 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
    * 1/2 cup walnuts
    * 1/2 cup toasted wheat germ
    * 2 tablespoons plus 1 cup firmly packed light brown
    sugar
    * 2 packages (8 ounces each) reduced-fat cream cheese
    (Neufchatel)
    * 16 ounces soft silken tofu, drained

    pumpkin pie filling)

    tablespoons brown sugar and pulse until finely ground.
    Transfer to a 9-inch springform pan and press mixture

    site going for extra easy recipes, so I will start it off. This Coffee cake is just wonderful and so easy everyone will think it's made from scratch.

    APPLE COFFEE CAKE

    1 boxed yellow cake mix
    1 can of apple pie filling
    3 eggs

    mix the entire ingredients together with a mixer and pour into a 9x13 cake pan.

    Spread 1/2 in cake pan and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Spread the rest on top and again, sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar.

    Bake as directed for 5-10 minutes more than directed on the box.

    You can use whipped or ice cream on top.

    Took some to one of our neighbors while it was still warm and they couldn't believe it could be that easy. I use it at least once a month.

    With this darn dd we can use all the help we can get.

    If you search for recipes in topic (at the top of the page) I had a recipe thread going for a while. Got quite a few good ones. If you can't find it let me know and I'll post some of the recipes I have for you.

    God Bless.

    PS: Sue et al, thanks for some good recipes! They sound yummy!
