Linderhof


Gardening, Cooking and Decorating on the Prairie of Kansas


Welcome to Linderhof, our 1920's home on the prairie, where there's usually something in the oven, flowers in the garden for tabletops and herbs in the garden for cooking. Where, when company comes, the teapot is always on and there are cookies and cakes to share in the larder.

Three Mini Cheesecakes


It's Three or More Tuesday -- and I'm not showing a collection of "things" but rather three mini cheesecakes I made for a party. I've made them "forever" and in fact, for Daughter Sarah's Fourth Grade Birthday instead of cupcakes she asked for the cherry cheesecakes instead.
I'm not sure when I first made the cherry cheesecakes but they are so simple -- a vanilla wafer in the bottom, the cream cheese, sugar mixture on top and then after baking, a dollop of cherry pie filling (or blueberry if you prefer -- but we like cherry!)
An Oreo is the base for the chocolate ones and these I topped with a raspberry chocolate jam -- which made them perfect!

The third cheesecake is "grasshopper" -- with a bit of green creme de menthe added to the batter. A drizzle of chocolate ganache was the finish. And yes, I noticed that many of them have an "M" of a drizzle!
Lots of cheesecakes add up to a fun dessert party. The guests were very pleased with the cheesecakes and the chocolate was the first to go!

Please join Tam at A Gypsy's Corner to see what other "threesies" there are for this Tuesday!

Yum! Those look delicious! I have made the cherry ones, but I love your ideas for the other flavors!

I'd vote for cherry too!
I see from your sidebar that you are teaching a class in making Aebelskivers! I have a large collection of old Aebelskiver pans as well as a couple of functional cast iron models. I hope you'll blog about your class.

Looks like I could goggle one of those down the hatch in 3 bites...dangerous, very dangerous.
When my daughter was home for Christmas break from college she brought home a piece of red velvet cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory. Don't think about steping into that place without ordering it, because it was fantastic!

Well if you are going to have three or MANY more of something it might as well be cheesecakes.
Is it true if you eat a mini cheesecake that it has no calories?

I also love the cheese cake with cherry toppings. I have made these before they are so yummy.
Thanks for stopping by my blog the other day and leaving a comment, so nice to hear from other bloggers.

Hi Martha,
I'd have a difficult time deciding which to try first. They all look fantastic! It might be fun to eat three, beginning with the cherry ... then three beginning with the chocolate ... and then .... you get the idea! ;)

Warm regards,
Bill

Each one looks delicious. Which do I make first?

Cristie said...
