This past weekend was marked by the best dance recital ever and the baking of King Arthur’s recipe for Creamy Vanilla Orange Cheesecake. This is one of my favorite cheesecakes and making it at this time of year captures the essence of spring. The scent of Fiori di Sicilia and orange zest while the cake is baking fills the kitchen, and the result is delicately delicious. It does not really need the fruit topping (but works well together).
My crust work needs continued practice!
