First Effort Of My Card Party...
Is that a cheesecake you want to meet, or what? White batter was flavored with vanilla and almond extract, Dark was same, except the addition of baking chocolate and snick more sugar....Swirled through to create a pattern( and I have done better!) the cheesecake is tasty, light, and after drizzled with caramel sauce, is really quite delectable! Cheesecake seems intimidating, until you you learn how easy it is! Spring form pans- thicker metal(aluminum) the better.. basic recipe is half a box of graham cracker crumbs, mixed with 1 stick of softened butter and 1/2 cup of sugar..baked in a spring-form pan for 10 min. at 340F...4-8oz. of cream cheese, 4 eggs, 1/-1/4 cup sugar, 2oz. of flour, and 6oz. of sour cream, mixed until it is smooth. add vanilla and almond extract.. Pour white filling onto crust, then pour chocolate mix into it and design, and bake for an hour at 290F.. Turn off oven and leave cheesecake in oven another 30 min... Top with caramel before serving, and enjoy the compliments!
Oh yeah, the night before, we had skinless chix breast and fresh cob corn..not a photo op moment, but ate great!
