Are you a hoarder of recipes?
I never thought of myself as a hoarder. At least not in the sense that my house is full of piles of stuff that I can’t stand to part with. If I don’t use it, I figure I don’t need it. BUT, when it comes to recipes I will hang on to one for years before getting around to trying it.
I probably clipped this recipe almost 20 years ago and put it in a ring binder I use to keep all my “clipped” recipes in. I have advanced somewhat to using MacGourmet on my new computer and can make my own categories and import all my old files in from MasterCook. I even have an app now for my iPhone that links my computer cookbook so where ever I go, I have my recipes with me. You can never tell when someone might stop me on the street and ask for a recipe.:)
I’ve made this cheesecake once once before (about 7 years ago) and remember it as being one of the best cheesecakes I have ever made. The recipe went back into my files and was forgotten until now, and while searching though old favorites, I happened upon this recipe again and this time it won’t go back into my files and forgotten — it will be marked as a “tried and loved” recipe. So, for your holiday table this would look beautiful with some bright red raspberries as a garnish and maybe out a glass of Irish Cream in small shot glass to serve along with it.
