Three recipes for a delicious Shavuos: Vanilla bean cheesecake tart with roasted Rhubarb, mini, personalized cheesecakes and a crustless leek and asparagus quiche side dish.
First up, a Vanilla Bean Cheesecake Tart with Roasted rhubarb. A collaboration between food blogger Chaya Rappoport of retrolillies and Gitty of Kettle & Cord, this cheesecake tart is simple, striking and delicious.
An easy brown butter graham cracker crust is baked in a 10″ tart pan with a convenient, removable bottom (available at the store!) and is then topped with a rich, vanilla bean infused layer of cheesecake. Chaya and Gitty use a hand mixer for the cheesecake filling, and it’s currently on sale for $8 dollars at K&C! The cheesecake is topped by a layer of seasonal roasted rhubarb, which adds a refreshing touch to the whole dessert. For those who want a beautiful and not too difficult dessert that wows- this is it! Get this recipe and many more on Chaya’s blog http://retrolillies.wordpress.com/
Next up, Gitty’s mini, personalized cheesecakes. The best part about these, besides for their cute look and great taste? They’re SO simple, thanks to the new 12 size muffin pan we carry in the store, which features removable bottoms and makes for simple cheesecake removal. An easy, cream cheese batter bakes up light and fluffy, and the sweet little cheesecakes are decorated with fresh berries, herbs, and chocolate. Try salted caramel sauce, Meyer lemon curd, or homemade jam for an over the top touch. These are easy to make and even easier to devour!
Lastly, a side dish for those who like to keep things light and refreshing: a crustless Leek and Asparagus quiche. Keeping it crustless eliminates an extra prep step and renders the quiche carb-free, making this the perfect option for feel good indulgence. Here, Gitty pairs sweet leeks and bright asparagus with a nutty, Swiss Gruyere cheese, a classic and well loved combination. Roasted tomatoes on top add color and summery taste to the quiche, which is easily made ahead and freezes well- just reheat when you’re ready to serve it.
