    That sounds great. I don't know where I'd find black walnuts near me, though.

    That sounds really good. I think that I'll put pecans instead of the black walnuts. Thanks for sharing.

    I just went to the store and asked them to order the black walnuts. You really do need cool whip on top because it is so rich. Don't think anyone can eat more than one piece.

    When I have a few minutes I'll add my New York Style Ameretto Cheese Cake. It's all the rage at church and parties. The crust is made with crushed macaroons. I can't have it around the house because I eat too much. I just love it.

    My daughter doesn't like nuts and doesn't like coconut so she uses the vanilla wafer cookies and jsut leave off the nuts.

    Our family likes it much more than the traditional pumpkin so we make it every holiday. I'll go now and add my Amaretto Cheese Cake. It's better than the pie. Just need a 9-10" spring form pan. I suppose you could use something else though.

    1 2/3 cups coconut cookies
    1/4 cup butter
    5 (8 oz) pkg. of cream cheese
    1 1/2 c. Sugar
    3 eggs
    2 1/2 tsp of vanilla
    1/4 cups amaretto liqueur

    Crush cookies and mix together with butter. Press on bottom of 10 inch spring form pan. Bake for 5 minutes at 350 degrees and cool. Cream cheese at high speed of mixer until smooth. Add sugar gradually, beating well. Add eggs beating well after each addition. Stir in vanilla and Amaretto. Spread over crust and bake at 350 degrees 45-60 minutes or until golden on top.

    For a variation use chocolate cookies and creme de menthe. Not as good though for me.

    We have black walnuts trees out here, and there is not much difference to me between them and the ones you can readily buy in the store. However when you go to pick them, they do turn your hands an awful color.
    My kids daycare had some of these trees, they tried hard to keep them picked up and the kids away from them. One day though, my oldest found a few that were missed and it took almost a week for the stains to vanish :lol: :lol: :lol:

    My mother-in-law had a tree in Ohio. She picked them with gloves on and threw them down in the drive way. They drove over them to break open the green parts and get to the nut. She had a cement floor in the old basement and they took them down there and broke them open with a hammer. They are really good on the pie but don't think I'd use them in any other recipes.

    Well, this sounded scrumptous! I tried it for a farewell party at work. It turned out kind of like a custard. Almost everyone liked it, but I had expected more cheesecake and less pineapple. Maybe I did something wrong? Thanx for sharing. Sara
