Cheesecake Truffles

(Click image for enlarged view)

Cheesecake is one of my favorite desserts after coming to US.And before I go back to India I wanted to experiment as much as possible with baking. I got this recipe from Nags Edible Garden....the moment I saw the post I fell in love with truffles and seemed quite easy to prepare. Last weekend I bought all the ingredients needed to make cheesecake truffles and prepared it yesterday. They came out so well . I must give a BIG HUG to Nag for pulling out this recipe out of her cookbook.They tasted exactly as she described. Yumville !! You will find the original recipe here. I used the same measurements and technique.

Ingredients:

For Cheesecake
  • 250gm cream cheese at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup sugar ( or little less as per ur taste)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup whipping cream
  • pinch of salt
For Dipping Chocolate
  • 8 ounces of semi sweet melted (I used Bakers semi sweet chocolate bar)

Cooking Procedure

Pre-heat oven to 350F. Line a brownie pan with parchment paper and set aside.

Beat together all the above ingredients for cheesecake.

Bake for about 30 mins until the cake is spongy and it should not dry up it should be lightly moist.Color should not change.Keep aside to cool.

Cut different shapes with cookie cutter.In the meantime melt the chocolate as per instructions on package and keep aside to cool.

Dip the cheesecake pieces into the melted chocolate and transfer to a plate lined with parchment paper.( Used a spoon to scoop the cheesecake out from the chocolate dip )

Freeze it for 2-3 hours and your truffles are ready !!

I want to thank Kiran of Sumadhura for a sweet thank you note for participation, who posted her Cooking With Whole Foods: Barley roundup. It is a fantastic roundup n never doubt what can be prepared with barley.....Thank you Kiran
