I attempted to make cookies and once again our oven let us down. Me and mama love a bit of baking but its rare we do because of our oven! We have some hope on our oven sometimes; we try to believe in it – key word being try!
Well, it was another let down anyway. Cookies were an absolute fail! I wanted to make chocolate chip cookie cups to later have some ice-cream with. The recipe was very tasty though; I used the SUBURBANSIMPLICITY.COM recipe for Chocolate Chip Cookie Cups [with cheesecake filling].
well mine failed! and there was no way it was going to go to any waste. As I attempted to get them out of the baking tray, I realised that was just another disaster in itself. They were stuck in the tray and that’s one thing that I absolutely hate. It’s not because it wrecks my baking, but the extra effort I have to add into washing up!!!
No wasting here and I decided to make cheesecake!
I scraped off bits and crumbled them roughly. I took about two-thirds of this batch and crumbled it even more. You can use a food processor to do this. I mixed in some melted butter to this part cookie crumble (not the one-third cookie bit that wasn’t further crumbled!); just enough to combine the cookie bits together. This is for the base of the cheesecake. Place this in a tin of your choice and refrigerate.
For the cheesecake filling, I used a very basic mixture with a 1:1:1 ratio. All this means is the three ingredients are of the same measurements.
- Double Cream
- Cream Cheese
- Icing Sugar
I whipped up some double cream until it was light and fluffy, created soft peaks.
In another bowl, I whipped up some cream cheese and icing sugar.
I combined the two together, slowly folding the whipped cream into the cream cheese mixture.
To this I also folded in the extra crumbled cookie bits.
I put this into a piping bag and piped it over the cookie bases.
Put these into the freezer and let freeze for a couple of hours! You can eat them straight outta the freezer and they don’t taste frozen; they still have a creamy texture!
With some of that icing still left over and not enough cookie left to make the base, I decided to experiment another once more!
In a small pot, I heated about 20ml of milk. (not boil!) To this, I added some cocoa powder. You can add cocoa powder to cold milk, but warm milk is just a quicker and easier way to get that chocolate powder dissolved well. I used 2 Tbsp of Milo Chocolate and Malt Powder. I find this having a more chocolatey taste!
Mix this chocolate milk into the cream cheese mixture once it has cooled. And pop it into the freezer! I sprinkled over what I had left of the cookie bits too!
A simple, rich in taste and chocolatey soft serve…
And That’s All Folks!!
