It has suddenly turned quite cold down here in Texas. We're joining much of the rest of the continent in winter weather. It feels too cold for cheesecake now--instead I favor a warm bowl of bread pudding for dessert. Has anyone ever had it with raspberry melba sauce? It is to die for.

Eeeewww--I cycle through soft drinks (often times based on what's on sale), though for a long time I refused to drink aspartame at all. I gave up trying to avoid it, but I drink mostly Diet RC and Diet Rite cola now (they have Splenda). I guess for my soft drink consumption I need to stick with those! I didn't drink any of the diet drinks when I was pregnant or nursing. So hopefully my kids won't have cause to shoot me later when world health starts crumbling due to prenatal aspartame.

No curd cheese is not the same as cottage cheese: it's smoother and more sort of homogeneous, but don't ask me about the fat/protein ratios! I suppose it's a bit like mascarpone or ricotta.

US "cookie" = UK "biscuit"

A "digestive biscuit" is sweeter than a (US) cracker but not as sweet as most cookies. It's very plain & simple (like a graham cracker) and is (I presume) considered:
A) easily digestible or
B) good for the digestion or
C) both the above

My (English) husband adds, "It's that little bit softer than a 'rich tea biscuit'", which I'm sure makes it all *much* clearer, yes?

The American-British/British-American Dictionary says:
"digestive biscuits n :
dangerously addictive drug with no known remedy. Actually, it's just a semi-sweet wholemeal biscuit, and you can sometimes get them at Safeway, but they probably epitomize what any British person thinks of as a biscuit, and for those addicts, a cup of tea and biscuits ends up being as many cups of tea required to consume the whole packet. (So there!)"

(If you look up "graham crackers", it says "these are like a semi-sweet biscuit, similar in texture to a light digestive biscuit, and eaten as is, and also often crushed to make a pie crust."

If you want to see a picture of a digestive biscuit (sort of -- it's on the packaging), click
here.

Cheers,

YY

About the recipe for Mini Cheesecakes -- a convenient cheat is to simply place a 'Nilla Wafer in the bottom of each "cup". Not *quite* as nice as a proper graham cracker (or digestive biscuit) crust, but nice & quick and still *very* tasty indeed.

Hey Donuel, I found this ........

"Liquid products that use aspartame have a short shelf life. This is because the aspartame slowly changes from the 10% methanol content into formaldehyde. Regardless, because once it is consumed there is NO natural antidote of ETHANOL (as there is in fresh fruit) to counter the methanol... so the liver readily changes it into formaldehyde. Then, if the formaldehyde doesn't get stored in the fat with a bit of water (that's called "weight gain"), the body changes it into formic acid (otherwise known as ant sting poison)."

Nice cocktail, eh?

I had a great recipe, also using a mixture of curd cheese (? 1 lb) with cream cheese (quarter pound) which isn't as high in fat as all cream cheese. 2 beaten eggs also which helped it to set when cooked for half an hour at 150deg C. Sour cream on top, and biscuit base much better if you use ginger nut biscuits ( harder to crush unless you use a food processor. In UK main source of curd cheese was Sainsbury's but haven't made one for ages, so don't know if it's still available.

Sultanas, Raisins, and Currants are dried from particular types of Grapes. Don't know the specfic details, or if they are also used in winemaking, but "Sultana Grapes" are often sold labelled as such in Australia.

Got this from the owner of one of our patients. I *personally* haven't had a chance to make it yet, but she made one for us and it was fabulous. It's a little lighter than "regular" cheesecake (Creole cream cheese is not as fatty as Philadephia style). I have not, however, heard anything about what it tastes like made with sugar substitutes. Nor am I good with metric conversions, if you're from a metric country.

*********************

CREOLE CHEESECAKE (Louisiana style)

CRUST:
5 cups crushed graham crackers
2 sticks butter, melted
1 cup sugar
    --> blend and press into a 10-inch springform pan

FILLING:
2 pounds regular cream cheese, softened to room temperature
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, beaten
1 1/2 cups Creole cream cheese (or ricotta cheese, in a pinch)
    --> cream together regular cream cheese and sugar. Combine eggs and Creole cream cheese. Mix the two. Pour into pan and bake.

TOPPING:
1 cup sour cream
3 tablespoons sugar
    --> mix and spread over cheesecake when it first comes out of the oven

good point Donuel (though I had always heard it turned into methanol).

The stuff is just plain bad news and should not be ingested by humans at all. Ever known anyone who drank Diet Coke? They don't just drink a bit of it once in while; they drink two or more liters a day, usually. I have a friend who is a vegetarian for "health reasons" who is addicted to the stuff....

For those for whom sugar and fat are not dangerous, just fattening, just think balance. Walk an extra mile, have a salad for lunch the next day, etc. Life is too short to cook with fat-free sour cream, and artificial stuff is not good for you.

Trader Joe's makes a Key Lime Cheesecake that I just love...

I have never tried to make one but I have always found that the idea of chocolate or mocha or what-not on a cheescake is kind of unappealing. I think I would make it plain, or maybe add orange or lemon or lime...

I have had pumpkin cheesecake, and as long as it is not too sweet, I thuink it's fab.

I'm sorry I haven't had time to read all the others but here's mine...

One packet of Chocolate bicuits (the type completely covered with choc)

Some butter

Half a tin of condensed milk (the thick gloopy stuff)

One small carton (tub) of Philidephia cheese

One Lemon (of course!) juice and guts not peel

An expanding sandwich cake tin

This is what you do... Whizz the biscuits in a food processor till they are crumbs. Pour into a bowl with some melted butter. Pour all of that into the cake tin and press it not only across the bottom of the tin but thickly up the walls as well. Put it in the fridge while you...
whizz up the other ingredients (cheese, lemon stuff and gloop) in the processor, pour that into the cake tin on top of the biscuits. It will be runny. Don't worry it sets within ten mins. You can put fruit of your choice on the top, or dribbled melted choc.

I have a friend who chefs in a hotel and this he sells at £2.50 per slice!

This is one of those breads that requires some TLC. You can't make it very well in the bread machine because all of the fruit scratches up the baking pan and it has to rise longer than the bread machine allows for. The chemistry of the fruit and such seems to slow down the yeast, so it takes several hours.

My mother's recipe (every ingredient lethal):

Cheesecake a la belle Helene

Best baked a day early.

Line springform with

1/2 stick melted butter
1/3 box crushed vanilla wafers

Mix with an electric mixer

4 large packets Philadelphia cream cheese
5 eggs
1 cup sugar
1/2 grated lemon rind & juice of 1/2 lemon
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
Cointreau or brandy or rum ad lib.
1 pinch salt

Pour carefully into springform. Bake about 1 hour at 350 deg F.

Mix

1 pint sour cream
1/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 pinch salt

Set oven at 450 deg F. Take cake out & cover with the above mixture.
Return to oven for 5 minutes. Turn off heat, open door, and let be.
When cool enough to handle, remove from oven & release from
springform. When at room temperature, store, covered, in
refrigerator. A paper towel over the top, under the cover, will
absorb sweating.

Saccharine has been in use commonly for not quite a century. Back when they decided to test it and were cramming lab rats full of it, they were making them sick. That was amounts like 1000x what you would take in a day, and that much of anything will make you sick. I read a study a few years ago that said when large study groups are reviewed (and there are many human studies now) and under normal usage, saccharine shows absolutely no increased risk of cancer or other illnesses. But you have to understand that what they did to those lab rats to set off the alarms was so bizarre that it skewed the results and people panicked.

Melt the butter and mix in the digestives and almonds. Press into a cake tin with a removeable base. Leave to cool.

Whip the cream until stiff. Add the remainder of the ingredients. Mix well. Pour into the tin. Leave to set for at least two hours, preferably overnight. CAREFULLY push out of tin. Enjoy!

You can experiment with chocolate digestive base or other alcohol for the sultanas.

SRS, isn't saccharine bad for you? Splenda acts and tastes like sugar, and according to many sources is perfectly safe. I think saccharine has problems, hasn't it?

Dog tart could be a little ruff....

"Georgian Tea" from near Russia contains Stevia leaves...

Stevia is used in places like Japan in the diet drinks, but the aspartame industry here has lobbied heavily against it, as has probably the sugar industry. I found it in a health food store, and it doesn't take much. I find it a little harder to make disolve in my tea. I haven't used it in a while, I have lazily switched back to the little saccharine tablets. But it is great. And Splenda is found in some soft drinks around here, Diet RC and Diet Rite Cola.

Big Pink, I didn't list mushrooms, but I'm sure when I got to that point I'd have remembered to put some in the quiche. Thanks for the reminder! I can't get the wonderful wild ones you do, I'll have to settle for the little white mushrooms from the grocery store.

I knew Alsatian was a breed of dog, and to bring this closer back to cheese again, a friend of mine had a keeshound, which I'm told meant "cheese hound" in German. Any confirmation on that?

SRS
