  • 2 tsp. baking powder

Recipe Notes

[My 2 Cents]
It's amazing what a difference using high quality vanilla can make. I mentioned in my Pecan Pie Cheesecake that I was recently introduced to Lagrima Pure Vanilla Extract and it is unbelievably amazing. Stay tuned for all of the details of the recent vanilla party I attended. For this recipe the second time I made it, I used Lagrima and I can honestly say I could tell a difference. It was ever-so-slightly taken to the next level of amazingness!
