Recipe: Dulce De Leche Cheesecake

Summary: If you’ve never made a cheesecake, or never boiled sugar to make candy before, this recipe might be overwhelming…but if you’re up to the challenge, it makes a fantastic cheesecake. It’s got a sweet, rich caramel flavor, but it’s not too sweet. If you want to go the extra mile, I really recommend making the caramel sauce with a vanilla bean. It gives you the lovely little specks that make the cheesecake look so fancy. The whipped cream and toffee bits are optional, but they make it look pretty and add another couple of dimensions to the texture and flavor of this cheesecake.
