Typically, I’m not much of a baker. As you may have guessed from previous posts, I enjoy making meals. However, at Christmas I will make an exception and bake.
Last year, I went looking for something new. A special dessert to go with Christmas dinner. This recipe I found for Cinnamon Roll Cheesecake sounded completely decadent and it definitely was.
As often happens at Christmas, I had no room in my fridge to store it after it was prepared. Since it was cold outside, I improvised and used Mother Nature as my overflow fridge.
I placed the cheesecake on top of our BBQ in its glass serving dish with cloche. I was thinking, how perfect, it will stay cold until just the time that I need it. Snow was falling and it was looking festive in its makeshift fridge. I even took a photo and posted it on social at the time.
Later when we were going to have dessert, I brought it in to cut, but it was frozen solid. We let it sit on the table while we all retired to the living room for a few after dinner beverages.
A few hours later I went check it. It had indeed thawed, along with some snow that came in with the dish. The snow carried bits of cheesecake which had also melted and together they formed a slightly creamy cinnamon puddle which had been slowly drip, dripping down off the table and onto one of the beige cloth-seated chairs.
This cheesecake is remembered not only for its deliciousness but also for a little silly absent-mindedness of mine. And we still have a mark on that chair to remind us.
The cheesecake has already been requested for this Christmas, luckily we bought a larger fridge this year.
Maybe everything will fit in this time.
