    Default Wish Me Luck

    I had some Musgovian ingredients around the kitchen.

    One lb of chevre, just past its use by date (what could go wrong with
    it anyway, it's already cheese)

    20 ounces of cream cheese

    A ton of sour cream

    Overlooked and past their prime chocolate chunk cookies and chocolate
    almond biscotti.

    I ground up the cookies & biscotti with some mixed nuts, tossed in
    melted butter and pressed it into a 10" spring form pan as a crust. I
    put it in the freezer to set while I mixed up:

    The cheeses, a cup and a half of sour cream, a cup and a half of
    sugar, zest from an orange, vanilla, 6 eggs, bit of flour. Then I
    let it all get beaten in the Kenwood until it begged for mercy.

    It is in the oven now. We'll see if we wind up with cheesecake. If so,
    there are strawberries and blackberries to place on top.

    What's the worst that can happen, the stuff had to be tossed anyway...
    (well, except for the fruit).

    I had some goat cheese once that involved mandarin oranges, I think. It
    was wonderful. Call your cardiologist.

    It sounds delicious, even if you have to eat it with a spoon, but all
    those eggs should be enough to solidify the mixture.

    Have you been watching "chopped"? The combinations they get are
    just plain weird. Yesterday was donuts, smoked gouda, white chocolate
    and dried apricots. Keeryst.

    I have palpitations already. Angina, maybe, too.

    Consensus is that the creation is similar in taste to an Orange Milano
    cookie. Very chocolate in the crust (and the sauce, which was sour
    cream, cream, sugar and Special Dark cocoa) and very orangey in the
    cheesecake part.

    Only drawback was that the cake cracked as it cooled. Ah well, I
    thought I'd avoid baking it in a water bath by putting some flour into
    the mixture, but it is amazing what sins a bit of chocolate sauce will
    cover.

    There was no overt chevre taste, just a nice, creamy sweetness.

    Me? I had two bites off of someone else's plate and was happy just to
    sit back and watch the smiles...and the cholesterol ratings.

    Ahh, but I've been baking long enough to know what I am doing. Even if
    I need to pay close attention to the chemistry of something, such as a
    cheesecake to make sure it will bake up with the proper texture I
    seek, if I have doubts, I can eyeball a recipe or two for something
    similar and know exactly where I get creative and where I must not
    bend the rules.

    We need to keep up with our superiors here. Our better halves.

    I've also been here forever, so it's a small shock that I haven't read
    anything specif from Boron that indicated a a specific sex.

    In any case, I'm an equal opportunity fool some times.
