Passion fruit Lemon No-bake cheescake (Cheescake de Maracuyá y limon)


















Where time goes, that fly, that leaves us and that is why we are nostalgic for what we do not do, or cannot do.
Sometimes I think that Christmas is going to find me even here without being able to even leave. 
In any case, I do not find it so difficult, what makes me sad is that as if everything was stopped as in a dream. Months in which I only go out once a week to the supermarket and the guard who is there knows me at least makes me laugh.
Take care you all!


Now the recipe: 

Yesterday I made this passion fruit Lemon no bake cheescake and was amazing (oh well I love passion fruit)
I made same changes at the recipe and think was good.
I found Passion fruit in my freezer with all the berries.
The best of this recipe is passion fruit curd!
The type of recipe I love to share.
You can make at night and eat  to the following day!

Raspberry Swirl Lemon Cheesecake (cheescake de limon y frambuesas )











A few days ago  was my birthday and I was thinking  make a cake despite the confinement (we always celebrate them here with the twins and my hubby) but at the end I decided by a cheescake because I  always liked and it's been a long time since I made one.
This was with lemon and ricotta cream and raspberries that is made like a jam. I love how it looks, I must say it lasted only until breakfast.
I use frozen raspberries and was fine !
I send you hugs and love in this difficult time.
Thank you for coming



Adapted from : Confessions of a Baking Queen













Ingredients


Crust

 1 package (12 onzas)  340 grams Vanilla cookies or lemon oreos
finely crushed
1/2 cup butter melted

Raspberry swirl

1/2 cup of water
1 tablespoon cornstarch
300 grams (12  oz) fresh or frozen raspberries
2 tablespoons granulated sugar

Cheescake

12 onzas (about 300 grams) cream cheese
completely softened to room temperature
150 grams granulated sugar 
3 tablespoonns heavy cream
1 plain greek yogurt  (150 grams)
zest of two medium lemons
juice of 2 medium lemons  (1/3 cup)
3 large eggs room temperature

Method

Crust
Grease an springform  pan (8-9 inch)( 20 cm.)
and set aside.
Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C).
In a small bowl combine crushed  cookies and 
melted butter.
Press into bottom and slightly up upsides of prepared pan . Place in fridge while you make the cheescake.










Raspberry swirl

In a medium saucepan, make the raspberry sauce by combining the sugar, cornstarch and water. Bring to boil and continue boiling 5 minutes, or until sauce is thick. Strain sauce through a mesh strainer to remove seeds.





Cheescake

In the bowl of an electric mixer beat cream cheese for 3 minutes on medium to high speed. Add granulated sugar and beat for another 3 minutes. Add in heavy cream, greek yogurt, lemon zest, and lemon juice mixing until fully combined.
 Add in eggs one at a time. You should have a creamy batter with no lumps.
Pour the batter into prepared pan, place  dollops of raspberry puree and use a knife to swril  the dollops into the cheescake batter.
Place the springform pan in a roasting pan and fill roasting pan with hot water halfaway up the sides  of the cake pan. This prevents any water from getting in the cheesecake and you dont have to wrap everything with foil.

Bake about 50 minutes until the middle of the cheescake  should jiggle just a little bit (bake a little longer if you need)
Turn oven off and let cool in the oven for 40 minutes then take oit of roasting pan and wrap if you like with plastic wrap.
Let sit in the fridge overnight.

The next day take the cheesecake out of the  fridge and using a hot clean knife cut slices of cheescake.

Ricotta tart with honey and figs (Tarta de ricotta con miel e higos)











The first thing I must say is that before (finally) making this recipe we ate 2 boxes of figs (small) and now  just did it, I don't blame anyone.

I have loved figs since I was a little girl and used to go to my uncle Miguel's house (my grandmother's brother) in the summer. 

He has a really big fig tree and were delicious.
If I find figs again I will make another recipe.

This is a wonderful tart with almonds and a filling of ricotta and Greek yogurt with honey and figs.

I hope everyone is ok(of course everything worries me) I just hope that it improves. I pray and wait.
A hug to all and thanks by coming!

Easter cookies (galletas de Pascua)




And here we are in a strange and uncertain world but perhaps more human. I dont know.
Finally I was able to make my recipe for this Easter last night. I wish you all, really everyone a blessed Easter in all corners of the world.
A hug to all !!

about the recipe:

New for me too and absolutely delicious, it can be done with other designs, I made the cookies and the twins (Esperanza and Gerardo) painted them and it must say they were beautiful. 
Today I took the photos and Voilá ..


Source :   whiskandwonder.com







Ingredients

(about 2 dozen of cookies)

3 cups all purpose flour 
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1  1/4 cups chilled unsalted butter cut into cubes
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
2  eggs yolk
1 tsp vanilla exctract

Method

Sift 3 cups flour, baking powder and salt into a medium sized bowl. Set aside.

Using and electric mixer  beat butter and sugar on high speed until well combined (butter does not need to be fluffy)
Note : you can make by hand too.

Add egg, eggs yolks, and vanilla and beat just to combined.
 Add gradually dry ingredients. Mix until dough comes together.

Separate dough in half and form two smooth discs for rolling.
Roll each disc  to desired thickness between two pieces of lightly floured parchment paper . Continue to flour top of dough so parchment doesnt stick or crease.

Transfer rolled dough to refrigerator to chill for about 1 hour.
When the dough is ready to cut shapes flip chilled dough so floured side is down. This will help cookies release easily.

Cut dough to desired shapes and place on baking sheets pans lined with parchment paper.
Re roll scraps only once to avoid tough cookies. If is needed return to fridge to chill until shapes cut easily. Chill about 20-30 minutes.
Preheat oven to 180°c  (325 °F)
Bake until edges are slightly golden, about 12 - 16 minutes.
Let cookies cool slightly on pans then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.

Royal icing for cookies

1 egg white 
2  cups icing sugar 
1/2 teaspoon water
 lemon juice (1 lemon)

In a large bowl combine the sugar, egg white, water and lemon juice. Mix the ingredients together with a wooden spoon until the icing is thickenes and smooth. 
Use immediately or store refrigerated in an airght container or plastic bag since the icing dries out and hardens very quickly.If you want it stiffer for frosting a cake or writing on cookies add more icing sugar until you get the consistency you desire.
