So much has changed over the past 15 months. Our family has been through so much, too much. This year for Easter we didn’t even get together as a family. I had decided that I was not even going to bake! Why would I? It was just 3 of us at dinner.
I was then asked to make some desserts for another family, a Cherry Cheesecake and some cupcakes. Then I got the ‘itch’, I must bake!
I was not totally convinced the cherry cheesecake I made had turned out. You can’t always tell until you cut into them (fingers crossed, I haven’t heard). I felt I needed to redeem myself, so I decided to make us a cheesecake. All this was decided on Good Friday – when all the stores are closed and Saturday the stores were a zoo. It always amazes me how people completely panic when a store closes for a day. You would think they would never be able to get food again. Anyways, I was not going to be shopping, I had to use what I had in the house.
I found a recipe for Cinnamon Bun Cheesecake. As intrigued as I was, I was not sure it would be good. I am a cinnamon freak, so the thought of it was just about making me drool, but I was not sure how it would pair with the cream cheese. I was skeptical enough to only make a mini one and halved the recipe. I also made a back up recipe!
I found this recipe on Life, Love and Sugar. Check out the site, there are some amazing recipes.
