This recipe is part of of our Tried and Liked Series. This recipe was found on an old Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk & California Walnut recipe booklet.
I took this easy to make walnut rum raisin cheesecake to a potluck dinner with friends recently and it was a huge hit. Eric and I love to bring things that WOW our friends, and this cheesecake didnt disappoint. Part of me was thrilled that my friends enjoyed the cheesecake, but I have to admit, I was pretty disappointed that I didnt have anything to take home.
Although this cheesecake has a slightly fluffier consistency than a firmer New York style cheesecake, it was every bit as rich and decadent. The tangy cheesecake flavor just pops when you bite into a sweet rum soaked raisin. The walnut praline glaze on top just makes this already elegant dessert even more decadent.
Once again,Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk rocked my recipe! We tried it and we LOVED it! I recommend it highly for your next get together. Just dont expect left overs.
