It’s that time again!
It’s time to show you what I baked for the firemen this week.
I have to admit I enjoyed making (and sneaking a piece – hubby brought me one home. Shhhh)
I mixed up the topping on the fly and it turned out yummy!
I started by making a crust. I had no graham crackers so I had to improvise. I threw some oatmeal, brown sugar and cinnamon in the food processor. I then added melted butter to the mixture. I baked it in the springform pan for about 10 minutes.
After I tried the cheesecake I could have sworn it had a graham cracker crust!
I used a basic cheesecake recipe and I, of course, forgot to take most of the mixing photos. It started with three packs of cream cheese.
Which I beat in JJ with sugar and duck eggs.
It went into the crust lined spring form pan and that went into my spiffy new oven.
I cannot tell you how much I love having the new oven!
It wasn’t gorgeous when it came out but it’s a cheesecake!
The topping started with some POM Pomegranate Juice. I boiled it down a bit.
Then I added some fresh cherries and some flour mixed in butter to thicken it.
I poured it on top of the cooled cheesecake.
Then I drizzled it with melted bittersweet chocolate mixed with a bit of powdered sugar.
It was VERY yummy!
