I found my headphones I thought I lost on my trip last month. Which means I'm listening to more music. Which means I'm in a good mood. A sassy mood. A creative mood. A blogging mood. Here's last month's Dessert Club.
The theme was Cheese, and we specified this was a sweet cheese challenge. When I suggested we open it to sweet or savory, everyone exclaimed then they would have to make two things, so we stuck to sweet this time around. The offerings were truly incredible.
Pear Caramel Tart with Walnuts and Gorgonzola Dolce
Hazelnut Crunch Chocolate Cake with Orange Marscapone
(one of my favorites!)
Carrot Cake with Marscapone Lime Frosting
(another of my favs)
Triple Ginger Blue Pear Tart
(OK, I had a lot of favorites - this was another)
Chocolate Cottage Cheese Cookies
Italian Ricotta Cake
Blue Cheese Ice Cream with a Poached Pear Reduction
And amazingly, I actually won this time (!) with my...
Rich Coffee Cake with Sweet Cheese Filling
