Brandy Hazelnut Cheese Pie

My family loves cheesecake, any kid of dessert that has cheese filling in it! I decided to create a cheese pie dessert with some unusual flavors. This is a really easy but delicious answer to my family's love of all things cheesecake for dessert - hope you enjoy it as well!!
