I’m sort of completely in love with the holiday season. You honestly wouldn’t think it if you came over to our house since I only have ONE fall decoration (that my mom bought for me), and just a small tote of Christmas decorations. So, if decorating your house is the marker for level of holiday cheer, I’ll definitely lose there. If you open my fridge however, you’ll understand! Currently there’s a turkey, cranberries half used from last week, cozy soups, mac and cheese, gravy prepped and ready in the freezer for next week, wild rice stuffing, and all the fixin’s for next Thursday’s dinner.

Costco got me yesterday with all of their special holiday food, so I just had to pick up a few items! Of course I got my turkey there, a big bag o’ pecans, some more better than bouillon chicken paste (to use in literally everything), and then some Christmas gifts. If Costco isn’t a one stop shop for you, you’re truly missing out…

I’ve been thinking about doing a Costco haul post – would anyone be interested? Or a 30 day costco shopping list and meal plan…. hmmmm. So many ideas, so little time.

OK! Back to reality here. Cheesecake. Creamy, light, fluffy, cinnamon apple cheesecake.

I love using half cream cheese and half yogurt in my PC cheesecake recipes because it lightens it up and isn’t so dense – always helpful during the holiday eating season. 

This cheesecake, although marvelously decadent, is actually quite simple and requires just a few extra ingredients beyond a plain vanilla cheesecake. The apples can be subbed out with cranberries, pears, or any other festive fruit you’d want to add to the top.  I hope you love it and add it to your holiday baking list!
