What're you cooking for Thanksfagging, /b/? Pic related: filling for a sweet potato cheesecake I'm mixing up.
1 1/4 cups graham cracker crumbs
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 cup melted butter
2 lbs sweet potatoes
3 8-ounce packages cream cheese, softened
7/8 cup white sugar
1/3 cup sour cream
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
3 room-temperature eggs
3/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1 cup chopped pecans (or walnuts, whatever floats your boat)
Combine graham cracker crumbs with melted butter. Stir until reasonably uniform, then press into the bottom of a 9-inch baking pan. This forms the crust.
Bake at 300 degrees Fahrenheit for ten minutes. Remove and let cool. Should be golden-brown.
I'll post the rest in a sec.

Place the potatoes in a baking dish and bake until a knife goes through cleanly. Should be uniformly soft. Let cool until you can handle and peel them. Puree in a food processor until smooth. It's okay if you leave some small chunks in there, it adds character. Bump the oven up to 350 degrees.
Beat the cream cheese and the sugar (3/4 cup, plus two tablespoons) until smooth. Stir in the sour cream, 1/4 cup cream, and 1 1/2 cups of the sweet potato puree. Beat in eggs one at a time, blending well after each one. Make sure you don't have any yellow streaks in the mix. Once it's all smooth, dump it in the crust. Smooth the top with a rubber spatula.
Bake at 350 until a tester inserted in the middle comes out clean. Should take about an hour. For bonus points, put the pan in the center of a large cookie sheet and fill with about a half-inch of water. As the cheese cake bakes, this will keep the surface moist, which prevents cracking.
Once the cake is done baking, turn off the oven. Let the cake stand in the oven for about an hour with the door ajar. It needs to cool slowly, again, to prevent cracking.
Topping recipe after the break.

Combine brown sugar and 1/4 cup butter (margarine, if you're a faggot) in a heavy saucepan. Stir over low heat until the sugar dissolves. This will go slowly, but resist the temptation to raise the heat. Burned butter smells like the devil's asshole. Once everything's dissolved, raise the heat and bring to a simmer. Mix in 1/4 cup cream, then add your nuts. Your pecans, I mean.
Allow to cool until just under a simmer. Pout the hot topping over the cheesecake. Pop in the fridge for about three hours, or until the center is firm.
Eat that shit. Take a picture of yourself eating it, then send it to all your friends. Feel the waves of euphoria wash over you, knowing that all those faggots be 'mirin.
I think you misunderstand me. I would fuck a goat if someone gave me biscuits and mashed potatoes afterward. I want to climb in your window, smell your mom's hair while she cooks, and then hide under your kitchen table just to listen to your family eat.
I want them 'tats.
Anon, provide your chicken pot pie recipe. I am on a mission to eat all chicken pot pies.
Combine your and OP's post, and you get Fagsfagging.
fuck yes, thank you anon. This will definitely be made.
Fuck you then, Fag-O-Tron. Dumping personal mashed potato recipe! I don't measure shit when I make this anymore, so use your imagination.
1 bag golden potatoes
1 8-ounce package cream cheese (real cream cheese, none of that low-fat shit)
1/4 cup whipping cream, or thereabouts
8 tablespoons butter, divided
Pepper, to taste
Peel potatoes and cut into fourths. Bring a large pot of water to boil, then dump in the potatoes. Boil for about 15-20 minutes, or until a fork passes easily through several pieces. Strain in a collander for about thirty seconds, then return to the pot. Reduce heat to low.
Mash potatoes in the pot with the potato masher you should have, unless you are some kind of asshole. The low heat should heat up the starch, making them thick and sticky.
Add in the heavy cream and stir. Don't get too zealous with the cream; you're going for smooth, not soupy. Add in butter one ounce at a time, stirring for about thirty seconds after each ounce. Once stirred in, add the cream cheese one ounce at a time. Stir until blended. Add about a teaspoon of pepper, a teaspoon of sea salt, and a good few dashes of seasoned salt. Stir. Add 1/2 tablespoon of garlic powder and 1/4 tablespoon of onion powder. Stir. Add more sea salt to taste.
Put it in a bowl and put a pat of butter on it, then experience body-wracking orgasm as you feast on this crazy deliciousness.
If you're going to foreveralone this Thanksgiving, at least do it with some style. Buy a turkey breast and some good bourbon, fry the breast and drink the bourbon. This is America, God damnit.
