My son’s birthday happens to fall on Memorial Weekend every year.
So, we basically get to have a party for him and for the holiday all wrapped into one. It was only a few years ago that he even realized that it was Memorial Day. I often wondered if we would get such a big crowd showing up if it wasn’t a combination of events. Either way, we always have a nice turnout and good time. This year, we decided to skip the whole birthday cake thing. The kids usually eat the ice cream and the cake goes to waste.
My boy has recently decided that he loves cheesecake, and I happened to see this recipe for a patriotic version on Facebook and decided that’s what we were going to do. Adults usually reach for a piece of cheesecake before they do the regular cake.
This went over so well, there wasn’t a single crumb left on the plate. I think everyone that wanted some got some so at least that was good. Next time I just might have to make up two of these!

Quick Tip: More cinnamon can be used if you like the flavor in your cheesecake.
