For those of us who love to do our creating in the kitchen, there comes a time once in a great while when one of those creations stands out as a testament of your love for the culinary arts, not by self proclamation, but by those who you love to share that art with. One might call it a "signature dish", a recipe that is frequently requested by your friends and family during special occasions, in my case, Paella and Boeuf Bourguignon. You never tire of of making them because you know how much it pleases those you invite to your dinner table. You always strive to make it perfect for them. I have no idea whether this double layer pumpkin cheesecake will end up being remembered as a "signature dish", it's not for me to say. One thing I will say however, from the reaction that it received on Thanksgiving Day by my dinner guests and the raves it got at the office on Friday, I may be making it again and again. There is already a request for Christmas Eve. As time consuming as it was however, I would not hesitate to do it all over again. The only thing I love more than cooking is pleasing my guests and this dessert certainly did that. That makes it all worth it and makes me happy.
