Fried Cheesecakes Recipe

  • 1 cup store cheese, grated
  • 1/8 teaspoon grated lemon rind pinch of pepper
  • 2/3 cup sour cream
  • 3 egg yolks, beaten
  • 2 1/2 tablespoons flour

Combine cheese, flour and seasonings. Add sour cream and beaten egg yolks. Drop batter in small spoonfuls onto hot greased griddle. When air bubbles appear on upper side of cakes, turn carefully and brown on other side. These feathery little cakes crumple easily and need gentle handling.

Serve hot from the griddle as they are fried. These cakes are especially good with fried ham.

Serves 6 generously.

The melt-in-your-mouth texture of truffles makes them a universally liked treat. Use one kind of dark chocolate (semisweet or unsweetened) or a mixture. Or use white chocolate only.

The following recipe makes about 6 dozen. Cut into small pieces 1/2 pound unsweetened and 11/2 pounds semisweet chocolate. Bring to a boil 1 cup each whole milk and heavy cream. Reduce the heat. Add chocolate to the cream and stir until dissolved. Cool, stirring occasionally to prevent it from separating. Chill until firm.
