Well yesterday we had friends over for dinner and I used the opportunity to make a new dessert with the hopes that if it was good, then I might have something worth entering in the fair next summer. I think we have something that is definitely fairworthy! I made a Brownie Mosaic Cheesecake that I saw on Smitten Kitchen .I encountered only two problems. First I discovered I only had two blocks of cream cheese and one of neufchatel cheese instead of the three regular cream cheeses called for (I just used what I had). Second, I had failed to bake the cheesecake long enough so that when we cut into it the center was still oozing. That was kind of gross.
Anyway, the cheesecake was every bit as good as we had hoped. I followed the reciped exactly except for the cream cheese problem and I didn't have bittersweet chocolate, so I used a Hershey's Dark bar we had been given. My husband said upon eating another slice today, "You need to enter this in the fair." The last time someone told me that about a cheesecake it won a blue ribbon. So this will definitely go in the "to make next year" file. Click on the links above for the recipe. My picture isn't as nice as the one on Smitten Kitchen's website, but I bet it was just as tasty! Go there now and make this cheesecake. You'll be glad you did!
