I'm living in the Cheesecake Land nowadays it seems *^v^* , because today I've prepared another one, I hope Robert will like it when he comes home tomorrow morning from his business trip! ^^ I modified the original recipe, so here is my version:
- 200 g of cookies, digestive type
- 100 g butter, melted
- 2 tsp cocoa
In a large bowl, beat butter with sugar, add egg yolks, cream cheese and vanilla extract, mix well. Now with a spoon add and mix in the egg whites foam.
- 125 g butter
- 100 g sugar
- 3 egg whites - beaten into a foam
- 500 g of cream cheese
- 3 egg yolks
- 1 tsp of vanilla extract
Pour the mixture onto a crust and add 3 pears peeled and cut into big cubes on top of that.
Bake for about 1 hour in 375 F/180 C.
The result is a very delicate foamy cake. Let it cool, cover the top with the icing sugar and enjoy! But even better leave the cake for a couple of hours in the fridge.
I'm sewing up Durrow today, keep your fingers crossed! *^v^* Then I'll just need to knit the collar, weave in the ends and add the zipper. I'm happy I have finished this project because new ones are on the horizon... (you know, I got Rowan! *^v^*).
Because I cannot buy any new yarn this month I decided to skip Quarry cardigan and start with something else. I have lots of orange cotton from last year's Tomato top (I bought 1 kg of yarn and used only 200 g... ^^) so I'll be using it now and then over dyeing it with some nice red or magenta colour. I'll reveal all soon! =^v^=
