Marble Sweet Potato Cheesecake
The original recipe was Pumpkin,I'm not a fan of pumpkin,so I changed it to sweet potato.The original recipe added walnuts in the crust,I don't care for walnuts so I omitted them.
It is a delicious cheesecake and perfect for the holidays.
Don't let the long ingredient deter you,it's well worth making it.
