I really think this recipe is outstanding! My boyfriend LITERALLY licked his plate clean! The texture is fluffy and light, with just the right amount of lemon flavor. I used raspberries instead of blueberries (just a personal preference), and used a different crust recipe just because it's my favorite and I like to have crust on the sides AND bottom: 2 cups graham crackers, ¼ cup pecans, ½ tsp cinnamon
½ cup butter (melted). You also don't have to pre-cook this crust so I found it to be a time-saver. Next time I might try to put a thin layer of the liquid raspberry sauce on top of the crust (under the filling) so it can seep into the crust during baking for some extra raspberry flavor.
Looked great in the spring form but after unmolding it spooning the blueberry mixture over top, the mud slide began. I could only stand back and watch a gorgeous formed dessert turn into a messy pile on a platter. The whipped egg whites must have given this recipe a texture that was much too light. If I had enough parfait glasses, I would have scooped it up and added a dollop of whipped cream and a graham cracker streusel. This dessert was going over to some friends so I just topped it off with some fresh cut pansy blossoms from our garden. I couldn't stop laughing after what happened.
During the holidays, I sometimes make an orange cheesecake that is to die for. It has been a few years since I made it but this year I finally succumbed to my children’s request. I could not find my recipe but my research lead me to this recipe as it best matched my recollection of my former recipe. The cheesecake turned out so well that I felt compelled to review this recipe because this technique is excellent. The resulting cheesecake is so light and fluffy that you will feel as though you are not eating a sinfully delicious treat. I substituted a chocolate-hazelnut crust by using 1 pkg of Famous chocolate wafers, ½ cup chopped hazelnuts, ¼ cup sugar and ¼ cup butter. I crushed the wafers in the blender with the hazelnuts a quarter package at a time by using the pulse button on and off for about 30 seconds each batch. After mixing in the butter and sugar, I pressed it into the spring pan on the bottom and the sides. I substituted orange flavoring for the lemon with 1/4 cup fresh orange juice, finely grated orange zest from 1 orange and 2 tsp orange extract. I followed the recipe's instructions explicitly and chilled the cheesecake overnight after I let it cool in the oven. After removing from the spring pan, I cut the cheesecake with a knife that has been rinsed in hot water in between each slice. I then serve with a drizzle of chocolate syrup
I use this in my restaraunt and everyone simply can"t get enough of it. excellent product review!!!!!!!!!
the perfect consistency (for me!)--not as dense as a crumbly cheesecake nor as soft as those mousse-y ones. i halved the recipe, and the filling fit a 9-inch store-bought graham cracker crust perfectly. also omitted the topping for a super easy and delicious dessert. otherwise followed the recipe and the lemon flavor was wonderful!
Delicious! Like another reviewer, I also had too much filling for my pan so I may use a larger pan next time. And like another reviewer, it was difficult to cut so I'll probably freeze it before cutting next time. My husband is gluten-intolerant so I used gluten-free graham cracker-type crumbs instead of the regular variety.
Light and fluffy yet rich and decadent, this soufflé was a huge hit at my family's Christmas party last year. I've never made a soufflé before this and found the idea of it somewhat intimidating. Luckily, it was pretty easy and came out beautifully! If I could give it an extra star, I would!
This was amazing!! I loved the fluffy, airy texture! I did use raspberries instead of blueberries (personal preference) and it was to die for! My only problem was that I ended up with too much filling for my spring form pan...so I just put the extra in custard cups and baked it seperatly. This recipe was well worth the effort and I will make agian and again!
