On February 21st, in celebration of Geroge Washington's birthday, we will be sharing cherry recipes.
Here is my yummy entry:
The basic recipe for these dairy free mini-cheesecakes comes from Lexie's Kitchen. Since I found out that soaked, pureed cashews can substitute for dairy in recipes such as pudding, I have been utterly fascinated. It's like magic to me and when I come across a recipe that uses this technique, I bookmark it.
When I discovered Alexa's recipe, I knew it would be perfect for This Week's Cravings. I only made two changes. I used frozen and thawed cherries in place of strawberries and almonds for the macadamia nuts. I added a little Coconut Whipped Cream and a cherry on top to make it pretty. Ta-da! So easy! Truly, for I cannot tell a lie! I understand if you'd like to give me the "gong" right about now......or should I say "axe"?
The 1/3 cup of lime juice makes this "cheese"cake very limey. Hence the name.
By the way, in the search for cherries in the middle of winter, I came across natural maraschino cherries with no artificial ingredients or dyes. Good to know the next time I want to make the kids sundaes!
