Failed Cheesecake? heres a fix PLUS a Recipe

Filed in Gather Food Essential by on December 28, 2009 0 Comments

Ted’s daughter made a cheesecake the other day but wasn’t happy with the result.  This is what I did with the cheesecake for which she was being WAY over critical of herself. It was good and even better in the following…


I made a white cake and baked it in a flan pan.  I put the cheese cake in the middle of the flan and topped it with fresh berries:  blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries.  The glaze is apricot preserves, heated in the microwave and brushed on top of the fruit.  Pretty snazzy isn’t it?!

The second dessert I was put in charge of was the pumpkin pie. “Libby’s Famous Pumpkin Pie”


  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/4 tsp ground clove
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 can 100% Pure Pumpkin (“Libby’s of course!)
  • 1 can Evaporated Milk (12 oz)
  • 1 UNBAKED 9” deep dish pie shell

Preheat oven to 425 F.

Mix the sugar, salt, spices in a small bowl.  Beat eggs in a large bowl. Stir in the pumpkin and the sugar-spice.  Gradually stir in evaporated milk. Pour into the pie shell.

Bake for 15 minutes at 425 F.  Reduce heat to 350 F and bake for 50 more minutes.  Cool on wire rack for 2 hours. Serve or refrigerate.
