If you like the "Turtle Candy" you'll love this cheesecake. I was able to attend a cooking show back in 1999 hosted by Chef John Folse and this is the recipe he demonstrated. If you like Louisiana cooking get his "Hot Beignets & Warm Boudoirs" cookbook. He traveled through all the B&B's in LA and out of hundreds some appear in his cookbook. There is also some marvelous history and pictures of plantation homes. My family loves this, very rich, but oh so good! I tweaked it a bit using chocolate graham crackers and lighter fare ingedients.
