As per your votes, this weekend I dove in and made myself a cheesecake. A lemon cheesecake. I was pretty nervous, but also really excited because I felt like creating something that would get me out of the uninspired funk I've been muddling through. It worked.
I was going to cheat and make a no-bake one, but I wanted to do this RIGHT. My assumptions that a no-bake cheesecake would in fact, be way easier were right. Because with cheesecake, the mixing and pouring is simple- it's the baking that can really screw it up.
I over-baked mine. Yes. It cracked. But I covered up the cracks nicely, no?
And what's a dessert without the cutest nieces ever?
My 5 year-old niece, Miriam couldn't even finish her slice because it was so sweet. 3 year-old Claire conquered hers.
I call both instances... success.
