HERE’S WHAT YOU NEED:
FOR THE CRUST:
1 package of Krispy Kreme Donut Holes – 36 – 48 count
FOR THE CHEESECAKE:
4 Packages of Cream Cheese – 8 ounces – softened
1 cup of Heavy Cream – Whipped
1 Tablespoon of Powdered Sugar
1/3 cup of Coffee Mate Glazed Donut flavor Creamer
1 Tablespoon of Vanilla
1 cup of Sugar
4 ounces of Cream Cheese
4 Tablespoons of Butter
1/4 teaspoon of Vanilla
1 Tablespoon of Heavy Cream
3 to 4 cups of Powdered Sugar
2 cups of Powdered Sugar
3 drops of Vanilla
5 or 6 drops of Milk
HERE’S WHAT YOU DO:
Fill the bottom of a Parchment lined 7 inch Spring-form pan with Donut Holes, and with a flat bottom glass, smash the Donuts in the bottom of the pan, filling the pan with a Donut Hole Crust. Place the pan in the freezer.
In the mixing bowl of a stand mixer, place the Heavy Cream, and 1 Tablespoon of Powdered Sugar, and whip with the Whisk attachment until stiff peaks form, and the Cream is whipped. Add the Vanilla and the Cream Cheese, and blend until smooth and fluffy. Add the Sugar, and Donut flavored Creamer, and mix until smooth.
Add 6 Donut Holes to the Mixing bowl, and blend into the Batter, breaking up the Donut Holes into the Cheesecake.
Remove the pan from the Freezer, and pour the Glazed Donut Cheesecake batter into the Pan, and place the pan back in the Freezer overnight for best results.
The next day, when the Cheesecake is completely firm, follow the instructions below:
In a medium bowl, add the Powdered Sugar, Vanilla, and Milk and mix until smooth. The Glaze should be thick, but pourable. Remove the Cheesecake from the Freezer, and pour the Glaze over the top of the Cheesecake, allowing it to run over the edges – see photo. Place Donut Holes in the Center of the Cheesecake.
FROSTING:In the mixing bowl, add the Softened Butter, and Softened Cream Cheese, and mix with the whisk attachment until creamy and fluffy. Add the Vanilla and Heavy Cream, and mix. Add the Powdered Sugar, one cup at a time, blending on low speed, and scraping the bowl down as needed, until all powdered sugar is added, and the frosting is completely mixed and smooth.
Using Plastic wrap (Glad Wrap) tear off a piece about 10 inches wide, and place the Frosting length-wise in the middle of the plastic wrap. It will look like a long ribbon of Frosting. Then, roll the plastic wrap around the Frosting, making sure to keep it long, or length-wise like a long ribbon. Snip the end off of the Plastic wrap, on one end only, and twist the other end closed. Place the plastic wrap in a pastry bag with the Large Star Tip. Pipe the Frosting onto the edges of the Cheesecake, using a swirling, motion, leaving big dollops on the cheesecake, and bring it up to a point. Place a Donut Hole on top of each Dollop of Frosting.
Place the cheesecake back in the Freezer until time to serve. When ready to serve, remove the Spring-form from the pan, and slice the Cheesecake into 2 inch pieces. Serve, and Enjoy!
