I found this recipe online..it read "A scrumptious Carrot Cake Cheesecake with the added sweetness of pineapple frosting"...YEP they were right. I made this for an open house this past summer..it was a huge hit. Not one crumb was left on the plate..in fact people were looking for more. Next time I will make two. It is rich, but, oh soooo delicious.
