Papa’s been working hard all day building the new cabinet for our small bathroom, so I decided to make something for him. He simply adores cheesecake. Me? Not so much. I’ve actually never made a cheesecake. But, I’m a sucker for cannoli. Let’s see how this turns out, shall we?
007 loves top-secret projects.
This one required a bunch of ingredients.
He cracks me up.
As soon as I plugged the food processor in, he started singing:
“You turn me right round, baby, right round, like a record baby…”
Yup. Parenting at it’s best right there.
This is why I can’t home-school this kid.
If I did, he would just learn about 1980’s music, British history and Star Wars.
It’s good he’s going back to school in a few weeks.
I’m holdin’ him back. Unless he wants to be in an 80’s cover band,
or a British history professor, or work for George Lucas.
Maybe I should keep him home with me.
The crust was fun to make.
He liked crushing the waffle cones
and then pulverizing them.
He also enjoys the mixer.
“…like a record baby. Right, right, round, round…”
The cheesecake part of these little cheesecake cannolis was light and fluffy.
Into the oven they went.
I was skeptical.
Would they bake?
Would they come out of the tin easily?
Check it out: I made little cheesecakes!!!
Then I added the cannoil part,
wIth the cute little tiny chocolate chips.
(Yes, Cat there are plenty left for you.)
And then I ate it.
I. Ate. Cheesecake.
In the future, I would do two things to improve these cute little guys:
1. Make the crust thinner.
It came out a little chewy and I think it’s supposed to be crispy.
2. Ditch the cannoil part.
Even though it was very good,
it didn’t taste enough like a cannoli for me.
A really nice blueberry sauce would have been much better.
Still, though, Papa appreciated them and that’s the only reason I even ventured into cheesecake land.
