        • I know you‘re probably referring to a dessert-y cheesecake, but I have an awesome recipe for an appetizer cheesecake...it’s gorgonzola cheesecake and it’s fantastic!  I have made it several times for different gatherings and it’s always a hit.  Let me know if anyone would like the recipe.

        • No pressure...your cheese is ready!  Here’s the recipe:

          Gorgonzola Cheesecake

          PREHEAT OVEN TO 325.

          ROAST 12 CLOVES OF GARLIC (WRAPPED IN FOIL) FOR APPROX. 40 MINUTES.  REMOVE FROM OVEN, LET COOL.

          POLENTA CRUST:
          ½ C. CORNMEAL
          1 ½ C. WATER
          ½ T. SALT
          1 T. CHOPPED GARLIC
          1 T. DRY BASIL
          ¼ C. SHREDDED PARMESAN

          BRING WATER TO A BOIL IN SMALL SAUCEPAN.  STIR CORNMEAL, GARLIC, SALT, AND BASIL INTO BOILING WATER.  REDUCE TO A SIMMER AND COOK FOR 15 MINUTES.  COVER AND STIR OCCASIONALLY.  AFTER POLENTA IS COOKED, FOLD IN PARMESAN CHEESE.  ALLOW TO COOL FOR 10 MINS.  PRESS INTO THE BOTTOM OF A 10" SPRING FORM PAN.  SET ASIDE.

          GORGONZOLA FILLING:
          2 ½ LBS. CREAM CHEESE
          1 LB. GORGONZOLA CHEESE
          5 EGGS

          WHILE THE POLENTA IS COOKING, PLACE GORGONZOLA AND CREAM CHEESE IN A LARGE MIXING BOWL AND ALLOW TO SOFTEN FOR APPROX. 30 MINUTES.  ADD EGGS AND MIX BY HAND UNTIL EGGS ARE FULLY INCORPORATED.  POUR THE CHEESE FILLING INTO THE SPRING FORM PAN.  TAP LIGHTLY ON COUNTER TO REMOVE AIR BUBBLES.  

          CAREFULLY REMOVE SKINS FROM ROASTED GARLIC CLOVES.

          PLACE ROASTED GARLIC AROUND THE PERIMETER OF THE PAN AT EQUAL DISTANCES.

          BAKE FOR APPROX. 1 HOUR UNTIL INTERNAL TEMPERATURE OF 160 OR THE CAKE SPRINGS BACK WHEN LIGHTLY JIGGLED.  ALLOW TO COOL ON COUNTER FOR AT LEAST AN HOUR.  

          SERVE WITH TOASTED BAGUETTE OR CRACKERS.

          TO REHEAT:  SLICE AND WARM IN A 350 OVEN.  CAN ALSO BE MICROWAVED.  KEEPS UP TO 1 WEEK IN REFRIGERATOR.

          Bon Apetit!!

        • Did you know in NY the cheesecakes do not have a bottom crust.  They serve them like a slice of cheese.  When baked the bottom gets hard like the sides and its really delicous.  

          Key lime sounds great.  Im on Atkins diet so any sweet I can make with splenda and cheese I can eat.  I make a cheese cake small each week to pick at and I alternate with Magnolia Pie.
