new post, who dis?
^^ current feels that are always current
but ruh-heeealllyyyy. my camera has been collecting dust the last couple of weeks due to an increased amount of weekly late-night cooking (like from one night to maybe two) and then the weekends I basically have been mowing the frozen food aisles with whatever pretty label catches my eye. TOTAL fail.
and whiskey, because you guys, I am socially awkward with out it.
totally half kidding.
*extreme emphasis on the half*
BUT. the good news is that with the sweatpocolypse that is quickly approaching, I’ll be able to shoot a little later in the evening so posts will become much more frequent, again (and here is the part where I place my foot into my mouf).
There’s barely any notes…. but of course I have found someway to continue the length of this post:
Dates. First dates or the WORST. But soaked dates aren’t. Remove the pits and then soak your (fruit) dates for 10 minutes in water (just a small bowl of water that pretty much covers them) will do. This helps soften the date and allows it to blend better into the crust. Yahhhhm.
The mixings of the cheesez + yogurt are a must here. The goat cheese is the prominent flavor, but the greek yogurt helps smooth it out a little more and then the addition of low fat cream cheese still gives you a hint of that cheesecake flavor that the majority is drawn to. I think adding a familiar flavor key is important for classic desserts w/ a twist.
NO BAKE. That’s one of the best parts. In fact if you make two, you can freeze the other for a rainy day. Or a sunny day. Or an evening when you know you’re having a party with your friends Jack & Crown. The best. Just wrap the pie in plastic wrap (making sure plastic wrap sticks to surface, you need to do this after it’s chilled for a couple of hours) and then place in freezer.
ALSO. Top this with whatever you please. I have an obsession with Luxardo Cherries (you can find this expensive jar in the liquor aisle, worth every damn penny and mouth sore that comes from overeating it). Fresh fruit works really well here, or perhaps a homemade lemon – blueberry compote. Find the recipe for that one here —-.
