Decadent, luxurious, thoroughly satisfying...cheesecake is one of those desserts that gets an ooh or an ahh from the crowd at very first sight. There are few treats that feel so tempting...and wrong but so right! But we digress. Here are some techniques you need to know if you want to achieve the perfect cheesecake.
You will need a 2 3/8-inch fluted round pastry cutter or a standard round cutter. You can make the cake in advance and refrigerate it overnight; the portion of each cookie covered with cream will soften, making the cake easy to slice.
Dinner guests will do a double take when they see these desserts, which resemble cappuccinos. Coffee shops offer popular drinks in hot and cold renditions; this clever dessert combines both in one with a cloud of steamed, frothy milk atop mocha semifreddo, a light and airy ice cream-like frozen treat.
