First I like to say thank you to those that linked up last week.
I was incredibly impressed with the Biscuit Castle made by T for a homework project over on Autism Mumma. How brilliant and it looks tasty too...I'm a terrible biscuit addict.
Then over on In the Playroom blog, I was really happy to find that I'm not the only mum to make fajitas with chicken dippers (I have one child who will only eat chicken dippers so I try to get inventive with them) These ones look very yummy, I wouldn't mind trying them myself
Thank you for linking up and I hope you will join us again. All posts can be found archived on the Kids in the Kitchen Pinterest Board.
White Chocolate Cheesecake.
We adapted this a little because I didn't have any Philadelphia in the fridge so I used mascarpone cheese. It is very similar but less acidic and a little more creamy. It did go just as nice with the white chocolate though.
50g unsalted melted butter
150g ginger biscuits (you can use digestives)
100g mascarpone cheese
100g white chocolate buttons
120ml double cream
30g caster sugar
we put the biscuits in a food bag and the Little Man had loads of fun bashing them up to crumbs.
We covered a 7" victoria sponge tin with tin foil, this helps to remove the cheesecake when set.
We added the biscuit crumbs to the melted butter and mixed well.
The mixture was then pressed into the bottom of the tin with the back of a spoon.
This was then put in the fridge to set while we made the topping.
In a large bowl we whisked the cream into peaks. The Little Man thought this was good fun and was amazed to see the runny cream turn thick and stiff.
In another bowl we added the cheese and the sugar and mixed them together.
Meanwhile I melted the chocolate buttons in a bowl over a pan of hot, but not boiling, water.
We added the chocolate to the cheese and sugar mixture and mixed well.
Then I folded in the whipped cream.
So now it's over to you, get in the kitchen with your kids and come and share what you've cooked,
I'd also be mighty grateful if you included my badge in your post so others can see it and come along and join in. (although adding the badge is not compulsory to joining in)
