Candy Cane Cheese Cake

This Candy Cane Cheese Cake is the ultimate dessert for new year's eve, made of biscuits ( either Graham Cracker or Digestive biscuits) filling with the cream cheese and crushed candy cane, peppermint flavor makes it awesome, and I have topped it with freshly whipped cream. I would advise  if you plan to make this cake for the occasion of new year's eve make it in advance and keep it in the fridge till serving.

This cake is no doubt rich, creamy, full of the freshness of peppermint flavor, garnished with whipped cream with the perfect sweetness. you can also experiment with the flavor; gingerbread flavor can also be made.

The measurement 1 sleeve of graham crackers can be confusing, one may think of the amount or the number of the crackers one has to crush for the crumb, the rule of thumb is one sleeve of crackers means 9 sheets of the crackers which would be about 1n1/2 cups of crumbs, so for the 1 cup of the crumbs, you will need 4n1/2 graham cracker sheets.

A sheet of graham cracker is 4 crackers, a big rectangle sheet with the perforated lines can be divided into 4 crackers. One sleeve of cracker is 9 sheets of crackers that would be 36 crackers, as simple as that, now there is no confusion for the measurement no need to get into the soup after an intensive reading you would be able to figure out the nicety.
