Blackberry Cheesecake Bars ( Cheesecake de moras )


If December was really crazy, for all the things we have to do, no by the gifts I bought them online, but let me tell you January has been worse which has finally make me feel really tired and fatigued.

Just so you know why it took me a while to post a new recipe.

It is summer here in the Southern Hemisphere, with a really hot time, with a pandemic, and begin the season fruits like apricots (I have some trees) and I had to begin to make  apricots jam ...

And if you dont know the apricots is a very short season I looked them and were green and some days after they were ready!

In the middle of Christmas and New year..

Anyway today finally I made this Blackberry Cheesecake bars and was amazing and delicious and you can make with fresh or frozen blackberries.

Those who know me  by a time know how I love  berries an love so much blackberries.

A recipe really made with love, hope all of you are fine and send you tons of love !!

Blackberry Cheesecake bars


For blackberry reduction

220 grams ( 1 1/2 cups) fresh or frozen blackberries

For cheesecake crust

1 3/4 cups  crushed  digestive biscuits (you can also use graham crackers.)

70 grams unsalted butter melted

For base cheesecake filling

400 grams full fat cream cheese room temperature (Philadelphia or other cream cheese)

100 grams full fat plain or greek yogurt style yogurt, room temperature (you can use also sour cream)

120 grams caster sugar

1 1/2  tablespoon cornstarch

2 medium eggs  room temperature

1 tablespoon lemon juice

zest of 1 lemon 

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

You will also need

100 grams fresh or frozen blackberries


In a small saucepan, cook thye blackberries on medium heat until they have released their juices and part of the liquid has evaporated.

Pass the blackberry mixture through a sieve to remove  the seeds and skin.

Return the blackberry juices to the saucepan and cook them further until thickened . You want them to be viscous but not quite jam like.

Remove from heat and allow to cool completely.

For crushed graham cracker  crust

Pre heat the oven to 180°c (355 °F) and line  an 8 inch square baking tin with baking/greaseproof paper.

Mix together the crushed digestive biscuits and melted butter, then press them into the lined baking tin to form a firm even layer, This is easiest doneusing the flatt bottom of a glass or measuring cup.

Bake at 180° c fo9r 10 minutes and then remove from oven and

allow to cool slightly.


For base cheesecake filling

Reduce the oven temperature to 140°c (285°F)

In a large bowl using a whisk, mix the cream cheese and yogurt together until smooth.

Make sure to mix rather than whisk or aerate.

You can use a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment on the lowest speed setting.

Add the sugar and cornstarch and mix until combined.

Add the eggs one at a time mixing well after each addition until smooth.

Add the lemon juice, vanilla and lemon zest.

Assembling the blackberry cheesecake bars

Add 1 1/2 tablespoom of the base cheescake filling into the cooled blackberry reduction and mix until evenly combined.

Set aside.

Transfer the remaining base cheescake filling on top of the slightly cooled cheesecake  crust and smooth it out into an even layer.

Gently spoon the blackberry mixture on top of the base cheescake filling and use a skewer or toothpick to swirl it around

that's is the idea (this is from raspberries)

Evenly dustribute the fresh blackberries on top.

Bake at   180°c (355 °) for about 30 minutes or until the filling is very light golden brwon around the edge and the middle is still slightly wobbly when you shake  a little the baking tin.

Turn of the oven and allow the cheescaketo cool to room temperature.

Once cooled to room temperature transfer the cheescake bars into the fridge for at least 2 hours or overnight before removing them from the baking tin and serving.

Our apricots trees calling: We are ready

Triple chocolate donuts (Donuts de chocolate al horno)


 Finally  we are so close to Christmas, I love it is my favorite time to cook or bake. It was my mom's favorite time so that's why I'm always nostalgic!

Today I was finally able to make this  recipe, baked chocolate donuts (not fried) and they were very good I hope you like them.

These easy homemade chocolate donuts are filled with a fudgy chocolate filling and chocolate  glaze. 


And here two weeks from Christmas again in Quarantine, isn't it a crazy world? 

But I remember the lovely  Anna Frank in a more difficult time than us, locked up and still celebrate their Pesaj (Passover seder)

We cannot be less. Merry Christmas to all!

2  1/2 cups all purpose flour 

1/2 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 tsp baking soda

pinch of salt

1/2 cup cocoa powder

2 tablespoon special dark 100% cacao powder (optional)

Add the wet ingredients to the flour mixture and stir until fully combined. If you want add the chocolate chips and stir once more.

Add batter in a piping bag (or plastic sandwich bag)  and pipe it into the donut pan. 

Baker for 10 to 12 minutes. Allow to cool be fore adding the glaze.

For chocolate glaze

in a microwave safe bowl melt the chocolate, heavy cream and butter gently in the microwave (in 30 seconds intervals and stirring in between)

Dip the tops of the donuts into the chocolate glaze and place on a cooling rack to set.

You can garnish with some Christmas sprinkles.

NOTE : If you dont have a donut pan  you can use a muffins pan like this.

The first time I made baked donuts I didn't have a donuts pan and I use this idea.
From Taste of Home  from Jenna Urben

To transform a muffin pan into a doughnut pan you will need :

Muffin pan

Aluminium foil

Cooking spray or oil

Take a square piece of foil and place ir over of your fingers.

It needs to be large enough to cover the bottom of each cup in the muffin tin.

5" x 5" square works ok.

Fold the foil around your finger gently folding the sides up, to create a mold.

Place into the cup of your muffin tin and press into place. Repeat for remaining cups

Tomato & roasted garlic and basil mini galettes (Mini galettes de tomate, ajo, y albahaca)



French galletes are one of my favorite foods   but  many times I did not do them in a while (there are so many pending recipes) but I had bought heirloom tomatoes of different types (although it can be made with any tomato) and I already had them.  Until today I did them, and they are so easy (tres facile).

But... if you dont know what is a galette??

A galette, more specifically the galette des rois, is one of the most beloved dishes in the french cuisine. This food is one of the most popular types of galettes and is composed of a delicate pastry dough with a small charm, hidden inside.

 More often than not, this pastry takes the form as a sweet, open faced tart piled with with fruit, but many still love the endless savory combinations that can turn a galette into a main course.

They are popularized in american cuisine by vegetarians. While the classic greens of a salad are great or who choose a meat-free life, galettes are a surprisingly great way to bridge the two worlds of food.

Ingredients Crust

3 cups of all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon sugar

1 teaspoon salt

6 tablespoons butter (cold and cubed)

2 tablespoons olive oil

1/2 cup ice water

Gallete filling

Garlic 1 head

Cherry tomatoes (halved) 3 cups

or regular tomatoes in cubes or slices

1 tablespoons olive oil  more 2 tablespoon  oil divided

 1  onion (medium) peel in slices

Feta cheese or other cheese  (crumbled ) 2/3 cup

 1/2 cup fresh basil leaves

salt and pepper (to taste)

  Note: about garlic you can roasting several extra heads of garlic at a time - it's delicious on everything from salads to sandwiches and keeps well in the fridge.



In a medium bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, and salt

Cut in the butter using your fingertips or a pastry blender until the largest pieces are the size of tiny pebbles. Add the oil  and ice water.

Then use a rubber spatula to pull the dough together .(If is needed add some flour)

Knead a couple of times with your hands, then divide the dough in  five equal pieces .

Flatten each piece into a disk and wrap them in plastic individually.

Refrigerate for 45 minutes.

Roasted garlic

Preheat the oven to 370 ° F (180°c) and line a large baking sheet with parchment paper. Cut the top of the head of garlic to expose the tops of the bulbs, leave the papery skin itact.

Drizzle  wthe bulbs with 1 tablespoon of olive oil.

Wrap tightly in aluminium foil. Bake in baking sheet for 30 to 35 minutes until the cloves are softened smelling.

Set baking sheet aside to use later..

Once the garlic is cool enough to handle pop the bulbs out of their casings. In a small bowl use a fork to smash into a smooth paste.

Filling and assembly

Peel, halve and thinly slice your onion. Heat two tablespoons of olive oil in a large non stick pan to  medium to low heat.

Once hot add the onions. Once onions have started to turn golden color lower the heat.

Sprinkle a few pinchs of salt over the onions and stir to combine. Cook on low heat by 15 minutes. Remove from heat.

While onions are caramelizing halve the cherry tomatoes..

Place on a cutting board and sprinkle with salt.

Chop the basil into thin strips.

On a lightly floured surface, roll each piece of dough out into a 6 inch circle (16 cm).

This dough is so flaky if is tearing just patch it and put in the fridge by a while.

Transfer the circles to the baking sheet you used earlier to roast the garlic.

Brush each circle with the roasted garlic paste, leaving a 1 inch border around the edges.

Divide the caramelized onions evenly between the galette and add the crumbled  cheese layer. Finish with the tomatoes. Fold the edges of the crust up around the filling in.

Bake at 180°c (370°F) until tomatoes are starting to burst and crust is golden.

Transfer to a wire rack and cool for a while. When cool sprinkle with basil leaves.

Galette keep in the fridge for up to 5 days, but really I dont think they'll make  it that long.

Mini Apple galettes (mini galette de manzanas)


Love apples and galettes, however not all galettes are identical, the word galette come from France.

By definition a galette is simply a flat round cake made of pastry dough or bread, And looks like a rustic pie, so the opennes to creative interpretation  make galettes a culinary masterpiece for all to enjoy.

And that can be either sweet or savory and they can also be made from yeast risen dough like brioche or with a sweet pastry crust.

The fruits used in some types of galettes are typical seasonable and can include apples, or berries such strawberries or blueberries or stone fruits such as peches or plums.

For savory galettes, you can use tomatoes, basil, cheese or zuchinni, spinachs or broccoli.

"They are rustic and inviting: come as you are" (say Bonn Appetit magazine) and lovely to make .
