Quick, light and no baking!
If you have some fresh berries and ingredients for fathead dough, then you have the basic ingredients to make this recipe. The process is in three stages. First the filling, which is basically like a light cheesecake filling. Next you mix the dough and while it’s baking you make a quick glaze. This was my first time baking these and it took me a little longer than it should. Next time I will have everything prepped and be more organised. I literally decided to bake these on the fly today when I saw the strawberries needed to be eaten. Here goes!

It’s been every kind of winter weather today. Crisp sunshine, sleet, windy gusts, calm and then driving rain. A “spend time in the kitchen” kind of day.

I was surprised to see how cracked the cheesecake turned out and learned that overbeating is the cause. It’s odd, because when I poured it into the cheesecake pan I thought, ooh!, what a wonderful light mix. Using a whisk is apparently the answer to a perfectly smooth, heavier more settled mix and smoother top. I did use an electric beater, so lesson learned. Be sure to let all your cream cheese come to room temperature if using a whisk, otherwise you’ll be tired out mixing until smooth. Letting ingredients get to room temperature is a challenge for me as my recipes are usually impromptu whims!
I wish radicchio lettuce was not so pricey. I think it’s a beautiful, delicious veg and so vibrant. When I was at the check out, the person ringing up even double checked the price. So I turned it into Continue reading
I’m a terrible pie baker. There, I said it. It always disappoints me. There is nothing quite like a wheat flour pastry, which has all the gluten beasties that you need for binding and baking.
But. Continue reading

I was baking clafoutis even before I knew what they were. If I had fruit – no matter what kind – I’d whip up a light batter, Continue reading
