November 2017 Entries

bobbk's Entry

It has taken 12 years for all the pieces to fall into place for this cheesecake to be on my table. It was that long ago that I purchased a Myer Lemon tree for my late husband Gordon Myers. It has blossomed each year, but has only born fruit this past spring. The fruit itself took 9 months to mature. Several weeks ago, I spotted some white pumpkins at the market, and purchased several. I have been looking at them since then, changing my mind daily as to what their final disposition would be. I had my A-Ha moment when I read the November Cookalong. It was so refreshing to see a recipe not laden down with excessive spices. (I have had more than my fill of ‘pumpkin spice’, thank you.) To clinch the deal, I found imported Digestive Biscuits at the market – on sale! So I cooked the white pumpkin & pureed it, harvested my first lemon, and got to baking. The only addition I made was a scant amount of nutmeg & ginger, since I was not using an orange pumpkin. This is one of the finest cheesecakes to come out of my oven. It comforts both my taste buds and my soul.
