Chocolate Glazed Triple Layer Cheesecake

About ten years ago I made this cheesecake for a family holiday dinner. It got so many rave reviews that I’ve been making it on and off since then for dinner parties, teacher luncheons or any event that calls for a dessert that’s fancy, but is fairly easy to transport and can be made ahead. […]

Miniature Coconut Macaroon Cheesecake

by on April 19, 2009 · 13 comments


Last night’s cheesecake was a success. I was worried I’d overcooked it, and while I think it could have come out of the oven a bit sooner, it still had a good texture – that is, if you like thick and dense cheesecakes. I’ve typed up how I made it and shaved a couple of […]

Miniature Coconut Cheesecake

I wanted to make yesterday’s coconut macaroon cheesecake, but we’re not expecting company and since there will be only two people eating it, I decided to try making a mini version of the cheesecake using a 4 inch metal springform pan. I scaled the recipe down and so far, so good. The cheesecake …

tiramisu cheesecake

This was a great little dessert and I mean that literally because it was really small! I took the 13×9 inch version of Kraft’s tiramisu cheesecake, made a fourth of it and baked it in 9×5 inch loaf pan. Success! I’m very happy because now Todd gets his creamy dessert, but I won’t be saddled […]

Creamy Cheesecake

The cheesecake was a success and 100% free of cracks. Todd liked it and Emma seemed to, but after trying it, I knew why it had been so long since I’d made it. This cheesecake is ultra creamy. It stands up perfectly, but the texture is very smooth and creamy with less “give” then other […]

White Chocolate Marbled Cheesecake

Happy Seems-Like-July 4! Yesterday didn’t feel very much like a holiday. People were putting flags out, doing beer runs and getting houseguests settled in, but even though it was actually July 4, it felt like July 3 because A) it was a Friday and B) a lot of the fireworks displays and parties are today. […]

Today’s turning out okay. I love not being sick, and to celebrate, I went grocery shopping, cleaned the house, and washed the linens in the guest room. My mom’s coming for a visit tomorrow and Todd and I are going to a concert. We don’t get out a lot these days, so it’s a big […]
