I try to include dessert into my meals everytime that I entertain. I usually let J decide the theme for the dessert. This time, he chose bacon and maple so we decided to make Maple Bacon Pecan Cheesecakes.
The bacon and pecans were candied (separately) and allowed tocool before getting chopped up.
Each cheesecake was baked with maple syrup, then topped off with the candied bacon and pecans. And lastly, they were all finished off with a teaspoon of maple syrup.
Due to the amount of maple syrup that I used, the cheesecake turned out to be softer than my usual. J didn't like that much. He prefers the heavy duty type. I didn't mind the softness.
Ignore the uneven sides of the cheesecake. I served them with the cupcake liners on due the softness, but I wanted to show you my layers.
My guest loved it! He claimed it was the best cheesecake he's ever had. Although his biasness comes from the bacon. Which man can resist bacon?
