Nothing But Ideas
|I didn't bake a single little thing today. Not one..... I briefly had the thought of baking a butter cake to use the rest of the pink icing on (yes, that icing is STILL around) but came to the conclusion at 9pm that it wouldn't be smart, as my daughter was still up and I needed a bath. |
BUT... that's not to say that I didn't brain storm all day long. I have decided to enter a "Cheesecake Contest" sponsored by Philidelphia Cream Cheese. The winner takes 20K and I could really use 20K....
The rules are as follows: Must be 10 ingredients or less, must contain an extract, must not have a bake time over an hour, must bake in a 9x13 pan (gasp.. no springform??!!) and must have at least 3 blocks of Philidelphia Cream Cheese....
So here are some of my ideas:
Coconut Lemongrass Cheesecake
Honey Orange Cheesecake
Key Lime with a Gingersnap Crust
Hummingbird (pineapple, bananas and pecans) Cheesecake
White Chocolate with Macadamia and Coconut Cheesecake
Elvis Cheesecake (peanut butter and banana)
Caramel Walnut Apple Cheesecake
Rum Rasin Cheesecake
Chocolate Orange Cheesecake (For Tara)
Maple Pecan Cheesecake
Mango Pineapple Cheesecake
Honey Rum Pineapple Cheesecake
Mexicana Cheesecake (using Mexican Chocolate)
What do you think? I did a search on cheesecakes earlier and dear God.. there is nothing that hasnt been done! Except the Coconut Lemongrass and the Elvis.... at least I didnt see those!
Let me know what you think.
I am opening up the comments so that anyone can comment.
