Pudgy Turtle Cheesecake

You’ve never seen a cheesecake like this! To make this jaw-dropping creation, they start with a chocolate cookie crust, then add ultra-chocolatey soft fudge, then bake caramel-infused vanilla cheesecake over the fudge. It’s then topped with ribbons of homemade ganache and caramel, along with toasted pecans!

Flying Star Café first opened its doors in 1987 on old Route 66 in the heart of Albuquerque’s Nob Hill district. Flying Star has grown to 6 locations around town which are beloved community (and visitors’) gathering spots famous for scratch made, over the top bakery cakes and homemade New Mexican dishes. Founder Jean Bernstein, her husband Mark, and their talented crew invite you to enjoy their legendary Praline Toffee Bread Pudding with rum crème anglaise, Pineapple Falling Up Cake, Vegan Double Chocolate Indulgence Cake, No Gluten Carrot Cake and Pudgy (and fudgy) Turtle Cheesecake.

Ordering was straight forward, and easily accomplished even for a computer novice. Flying Star's selections were varied and familiar, and had been much missed by this New Mexico ex pat. Communication was excellent. I was particularly impressed by the packaging - the care with which everything was bundled - and the speed of the delivery - less than 24 hours to travel 2500 miles and arrive perfectly intact (and delicious). I heartily recommend any Flying Star selections to fellow Food Explorers - from soup, to, well, dessert!
