Favorite Thanksgiving Recipe:
Chocolate Raspberry Cheesecake:
1 Ready Crust Chocolate Pie Crust
6 oz. cream cheese softened
1 can 14 oz., eagle brand sweetened condensed milk
1 gg
3 Tbsp. lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup frozen raspberries
Chocolate glaze**
1.  Preheat oven to 350.  With mixer, beat cream cheese until fluffy, gradually beat in the milk until smooth.  Add egg, lemon juice and vanilla, mix well.
2.  Arrange raspberries on bottom of the crust.  Slowly pour cheese mixture over the fruit.  Bake 30-35 minutes or until center is almost set.  Cool.
3.  Top cheesecake with the chocolate glaze, chill!
**Chocolcate glaze:  in small saucepan over low heat, melt 2 (1 oz each) squares of semi sweet baking chocolate with 1/4 cup whipping cream.  Cook and stir until thickened and smooth.  Remove from heat!
This is one of my favorite things to make and has been a staple on our Thanksgiving table for the past 15 years!
Hope you all have a great day today!  See you tomorrow!
