Today it’s all about the Cheesecake..The ultimate Cheesecake that’s Gluten-free ! – why Gluten-free? Because I wanted to have a piece too:)
I don’t make cheesecake very often, not sure why not it’s pretty easy to make but maybe that’s a good thing cause I love it so much that i would have it as a meal..for a week! I remember the first time I attempted to make a cheesecake , over 17 years ago, it was so tasty but it had a major crack in the middle, and people were coming over! I was newly married and needed to impress! Last minute I decide to make a chocolate ganache and poured it over the cracked cheesecake. Well let me tell you that no one knew, it was delish and a hit! From that day I got hooked and needed to prefect my recipe and my technique so I would have no more cracks!
No Cracks on this cheesecake! the secret: do not open the oven door when being cooked and let cool in the oven once you turned it off for about 30-40 minutes!!
Over the years, my recipe has evolved, I’ve made double chocolate, strawberry, lemon and / or orange flavoured, simple NewYork style and even no bake cheesecake but now I think I found the perfect balance of sweetness , creaminess and decadence while still being an easy to make dessert. This year I decided to go with Gluten-free Oreo style cookies- ’cause I deserve to have a piece- and add a raspberry collie on the serving plate, it truly was Amazing!
Life is short ,go ahead indulge a little bit with family and friends and trust me they’ll be impressed!
