MANDARIN TART

As mandarins are now in season I thought it was worth sharing this recipe.  Using a ready made pastry case or creating one with pastry sheets would make this as it says ‘a quick dessert for the family’ also for visitors I reckon.

CHEESY CHICKEN CHEESECAKE

I’ve made lots and lots of sweet cheesecakes over the years, but I’m yet to make a savoury one.  This chicken one looks good though, so watch out family I’m going to give it a go next time you all come around.

BLACK FOREST DELIGHT – No Bake

I’m usually not a fan of cheesecake style desserts that use gelatine as a setting agent, but in this case I think the chocolate and cherries add good strong flavours and should make it taste really good.  I also like the idea of using Gaiety biscuits for the base.

CREAM CHEESE SLICE (NO BAKE)

As you can see this recipe is from the Keysborough Bowls Social Club Simple Slice Recipe book.  I’ve never made it, but I can remember seeing it on the table at a few “bring a plate” events back in the 70s when my kids were little.  It’s sort of a fake vanilla slice – the plate was always empty at the end of the event it must taste good.

PEAR AMARETTI CHEESECAKE

Like Mum I have a pretty large collection of cheesecake recipes, but this is the first one I’ve come across that uses Italian Macaroons as a base and pears as a topping.  You could use fresh pears in place of the canned ones if you wanted to, but I think you’d need to poach them first to soften them.
