TWD: Low and Lush Chocolate Cheesecake

This is another very brief post before I return with full (or at least, some) energy in January after a much-needed break. I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays! With a dessert like the one I'm posting about today, it's hard not to.

Low and Lush Chocolate Cheesecake. It's this week's Tuesdays With Dorie selection, chosen by The Tea Lady of Tea and Scones. And it is tasty. A classic, rich and sumptuous chocolate cheesecake with a hint of cinnamon in the crust. I think it provides a great foundation, and I'd like to experiment with jazzing it up in the future. A caramel swirl? Chocolate ganache or rasperry coulis on top? So many possibilities, and I can't wait to try them out. This time, I made one-third of the recipe in cupcake liners and it worked out very well. But I'm game to try making a full batch for my next celebration.

Click here for the recipe. Again, happy holidays and I'll see you in January!

I like the smaller version. It's like a perfect little serving of this decadent dessert. Nice job!

love that you made mini minis. Cute idea if want just a little bite of yum. I also want to experiment with it. Ganache, caramel, all sound just perfect.

Thanks for baking with me this week.

it's such a great idea to serve them like this. I never thought about it before. I'm definitely trying this next time.
