    Your plan for your next attempt sounds right. Nice color on your cake
    tho, and I'm sure it was delish- looks aren't everything!

    Default Raspberry Cheesecake Results


    Thanks to all who helped me with my cheesecake project!!!

    The results were good, but not perfect. As I feared the pastry
    filling mostly sunk. I added 2/3's of the batter, then drizzled the
    filling over through a plastic bag, then added the remaining batter.
    Then gently swirled a bit with a toothpick. The flavor was wonderful
    and the cake didn't crack. Next time I'll put the filling on the top
    and lightly swirl.

    Here's 2 pictures. My camera isn't very good and I'm not much better
    <g> so they're not great pictures. Sorry. This was not my most
    successful project, but eating the results were just fine.

    When I did the same thing in pastry school, we basically put "blobs"
    on top and then drew a knife thru- I guess you would call it
    marbeling. We also put jam in a piping bag and piped a spiral,
    starting in the middle. You could either leave it or draw lines thru
    it from center to outside- like you were scoring pieces. Does that
    make any sense?? It's a very pretty effect.

    I'll be more than happy to take your next "not successful project" off
    your hands.

    It looks delicious and the photo of the slice is great.

    58 cents!? For how much? The standard 8 ounce Philly brick? Cream cheese
    around here (Boston area) is rarely less than 99 cents lately - and
    that's for the store brand.

    I'd make cheesecake a lot more often if the cream cheese around here was
    that cheap.

    That's what I would do - go back a few times. Sugar is a deal too - but
    I thought it came in 5lb bags. Is that another case of "our customers
    really prefer this smaller size for the same price mumbo jumbo?

    Here's the current ad.

    http://www.ultra-foods.com/printads.cfm?storeID=735

    It's a limit of two so we just make 2 purchases, and shop more than
    once which we do anyway. I never have to pay more than a buck. A few
    weeks ago we got a free brick with a 10 dollar purchase.

    I started a thread about this not that long ago. Seems a few of us
    here can tell the difference, but most can't. I sure can't. As much
    as we go through the cheaper stuff is a big savings.

    We just got back and got 4 bars. We'll go back over the weekend and
    get 4 more and use the coupon we have for a free gallon of milk and a
    free loaf of bread. I'll get some beer or something that costs 10
    bucks and everything else will be free. Pretty hard to beat that
    deal!! They even have Philadelphia brand for 99 cents this week.

    I dunno. I always see 4 pound packages here. We used the coupon and
    got that too. They have great coupons. Last week we got a dozen free
    eggs.
