More cushions and a cheesecake slice
I have made some cushion covers with my yoyos.
I also made a yummy citrus cheesecake slice. The recipe is basically on the Nestle skim condensed milk tin, but I added half a sachet of Aeroplane JellyLite Lime Lemon flavour, instead of the gelatine. I also left out the egg whites as I don't believe in using raw eggs (not just because of the recent publicity about salmonella, I have always been wary of raw eggs). This meant the cheesecake wasn't as high as normal, but I called it a cheesecake slice and it tastes delicious.
125g plain sweet biscuits crushed
60g olive grove margarine (or low fat spread)
250g light cream cheese
1/2 cup light sour cream
400g of skim sweetened condensed milk
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup of orange juice
1 teaspoon orange rind
1 sachet of lemon lime lite jelly crystals (9grams)
1 or two passionfruit
Combine biscuit crumbs and melted butter and press into a lined tin or I used a glass pie dish. (I added a little orange juice as well) refrigerate until firm
Beat cream cheese until smooth, add cream, condensed milk, orange juice,lemon juice, orange rind and jelly crystals and beat until combined. Pour over chilled biscuit base.
Swirl some passionfruit over the top.
Refrigerate intil set.
The next time I made it in a square tin. (I then cut it in slices and froze half, so I didn't eat it straight away. It froze well for a few weeks)
DH is on holidays for a couple of weeks so I probably won't have much blogging time. Take care everyone and I'll catch up with you as soon as I can xx
