Company Cheesecake Recipe

My mother had given me access to one of my Grandmother’s recipe boxes last year (my grandmother had three recipe boxes plus some handwritten cookbooks). Some of the recipes were old favorites, some of the recipes I did not recall, and some were made for “special occasions”. For some reason (possibly the name!?) this Company Cheesecake Recipe was definitely a “special occasion” recipe.

Honestly, though, it does not need to be a “special occasion” only recipe. This is one of the simplest cheesecake recipes you can make. It is fluffy and creamy, luscious and smooth – truly a good cheesecake recipe!

Notes:

• The nuts can be walnuts or almonds, whichever you prefer.
• Chop the nuts finely, or use this trick to make chopped nuts easily!

Easy Cutout Cookies Recipe

First things first: sign up for my weekly newsletter! You get a free downloadable e-cookbook when you confirm your newsletter sign-up!

Notes:

• Shown for this recipe is a large heart cutout since it is so close to Valentine’s Day! You can make more cookies using smaller cookie cutters (heart or something else). And the converse is true too! (larger cookie cutter = less cookies)

• If you are interested in a great American made cookie cutter, check out this article! I just love Ann Clark Cookie Cutters! I now have a few bins full (truly).

• If you are not sure how fast the candy melts in your local grocery store turnover, buy some Wilton chocolates. They are a great consistency and generally easier to work with.

• If your chocolate melts are not smoothing out as you would like, add a touch of vegetable oil and heat again (this would be the third round).

• Load your piping bag into a glass, pointy side down. Fold the edges over the glass. Now fill with your melted white chocolate via a spoon. Snip the bottom (if using disposable), and you can use your candy piping bag to decorate. Remember, you cannot reheat candy in a piping bag, so work with small amounts!

• You can omit the white chocolate candy melts, and instead use this fantastic classic buttercream frosting recipe. Leave it white and decorate with sugar sprinkles, or add colorant for a colored frosting to match the holiday!
