OH THE JOY!
of making cheesecake. It was the twins' fourteenth birthday yesterday and P asked for this as their birthday cake. I used the Sour Cream Cheesecake recipe from the Joy of Cooking, and then I glazed over the sour cream glaze with a fresh strawberry glaze (recipe also loosely adapted from The Joy.) It's almost impossible to mess up a cheesecake, but sometimes they come out better than at other times. This one, I have to say, was superb.
