Vanilla Cheesecake with Caramel Pecans and a Butterscotch Sauce


February 10th 2015By The Gefiltefest Cookbook

This is my take on a classic baked cheesecake with some extra special topping. It takes me back to my Grandma’s German cheesecake, made once a year for Shavuot when it is customary to eat dairy food, which we always looked forward to eating. I love the jewel-like broken caramel on top of this cake, and it gives a nice crunch too. If you love toffee sauce, double the quantities and keep a little jar in the fridge to heat as a sauce with ice cream and desserts.

You should know by now that I am not a baker (nor a butcher or candlestick maker) Actually, my grandmother was baker, but the gene skipped me entirely. I really don’t like to patchke (fuss fuss fuss) too much in the kitchen. But you knew that already. It’s what I’m all about.


Mini Ricotta Cheesecake


April 30th 2014By Tamar Genger MA, RD

I am sure this recipe can be made gluten free since there is so little flour, but I haven't tried it yet. This version of cheesecake without crust really allows the flavor of ricotta to shine and it glows. Confession time, I don't like cheesecake and if I am going to eat it I need chocolate. That is why I garnished with this chocolatey fudge sauce, it looked pretty and made it a dessert we all fought over. I also added some mini chocolate chips to the mix so that is optional if you are a chocaholic like me.

* Gvina levana is a soft white cheese, similar in consistency to sour cream or yogurt. Although it’s traditionally part of Israeli meals, you can also find it in Lakewood and some parts of New York. (If you find it elsewhere, I'd love to hear about it.) You can also use Greek yogurt, it was just a bit more tangy.

This cheesecake is rich and creamy, just like a good cheesecake should be, but its is a bit more interesting because it is made with goat cheese. The goat cheese adds a wonderful tang and earthiness that is perfectly complimented by the herby undertones of the thyme honey.
