Sound familiar? It’s the first stanza of the popular ‘Christmastime is Here’ from A Charlie Brown Christmas. I gotta say. I feel like one of those children mentioned in the song: happy and cheerful! A. because I’ve been waiting ever so patiently to share one of my new favorite recipes with you and B. because it’s actually here! Christmastime is here and this year I’m really soaking in the season. Traditions are in full swing (new and old). Parties are happening. Good food is being indulged. Quality time is being spent with the special people in our lives. 

So lets talk about this super easy recipe shall we? I took a traditional graham cracker crust to the next level and swapped graham crackers with a secret ingredient. Any guesses what I used? I ground up some Sweet Home Farm Maple Pecan Granola – which if I must say, was PERFECT!!!! Did you ever have any idea granola could be so versatile? Well. If I’m being honest, it wasn’t my first time. My first time using this ultra versatile idea was for my Chocolate Buttercream Kiwi Tart (if you haven’t seen that recipe, be sure to check it out!). Maple Pecan is one of my favorites of the Sweet Home Farm Granolas because it’s perfectly nutty and perfectly sweet: ideal for a crust don’t you think?

Crank up your favorite Christmas playlist and head to the kitchen to make this delightful dessert – but don’t be surprised if you only get through a couple of songs, because this cheesecake is almost no bake, and is piece of.. well.. cake to make!
