    A very yummy cheesecake. Made this with our last ‘autumn crown’ squash. It isn’t too sweet a cheesecake, which is surprising with the amount of sugar used. I didn’t make the topping, as I filled my 8″ pan completely with the base and cheese cake, but didn’t miss the topping, it was delicious just as it was. Will definitely make again with next winters squash harvest, and look forward to making it with ‘crown prince’.
