Happy New Year everyone !!!
Thank you blogging friends for always dropping by !
Thank you lurkers well , for just lurking ! lol
Ushering in the New Year won't be complete without cheesecake , so here's the one I baked to complete our calorific New year's dinner ....
For the recipe , please check my mini cheesecakes . I made some slight modification , instead of 350 grams cream cheese , I only used 300 grams . For the crumb crust , I used 100 grams Marie biscuits , 15 grams butter and 1 1/2 tablespoon sugar .
I used a 6-inch square baking pan and 5 ( 2 1/4 x 1 1/2-inch ) loose-bottom tins for this bake .
Fresh strawberry topping , recipe adapted from Baking Illustrated
2 pounds strawberries , cleaned , hulled and cut into pieces ( I used 170 grams of frozen strawberries , thawed + 150 grams fresh strawberries )
1/2 cup sugar ( 3 tablespoon )
pinch of salt
1 cup strawberry jam ( 4 tbsp )
2 tbsp juice from 1 lemon ( 1 tsp )
* Toss berries , sugar and salt in a medium bowl ; let stand for 30 minutes until berries released some juice and sugar has dissolved . tossing occasionally to combine .
* Process jam in a food processor until smooth , transfer into a small saucepan ; bring to a simmer , stirring frequently until dark and no longer frothy , about 3 minutes . Stir lemon juice , pour warm jam over the strawberries and stir well to combine . Cover with plastic wrap and put in the fridge to chill at least 2 hours or up to 12 hours .
