The Boars Head Sweet Potato Cheesecake

I love Southern cuisine...especially the wonderful desserts. Today's cheesecake recipe (and vacation idea) comes from Boars Head, a lovely Virginia resort, offering a warm, intimate ambiance, exceptional service and unparalleled Southern hospitality. Located on a gorgeous 573-acre country estate, the 4-Diamond resort offers 175 renovated guest rooms and suites, 4-Diamond dining in the Old Mill Room, a wide variety of world class recreational activities, spa and 22,000 square feet of meeting facilities for groups of 20 to 630. Owned and operated by the University of Virginia Foundation, Boar’s Head is just minutes from the University of Virginia that was founded by Thomas Jefferson, only two hours from Washington, D.C., and at the foot of the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains.
