Tarta de queso 101


Tarta de queso

As a young girl, my first job was working at Marie Calander's Pie Shop and Restaurant. They made the most amazing, sinful cheesecake, that 30 años más tarde, I still remember. The trick while working at the restaurant was to purposely mis-cut the cake, thus making it un-servable to customers. This in turn meant that we could take home a free mis-cut cheesecakeWhat a deal. In the span of 30 years since working there, I have never made a plain Cheesecake, until this Thanksgiving (2018).  My thoughts on this lovely little delight is that it is a definite staple on the Thanksgiving menu. Perhaps, it's just too rich of a cake to enjoy it more than once a year, but Cheesecake is a seasonal cake for me. This simple recipe has only 6 basic ingredients. There are a few steps involved in preparing the cake, but the steps are clear and the results are unbeatableTreat your family and friends to your version of the simplest, best cake around...the Cheesecake.
