Horray for Holiday Desserts!
Of course I was excited when I saw the theme for today’s event. Cause, you know, desserts are my thing! I also knew right away that I wanted to make a dessert that included Cranberries in Red Wine, a dish that shows up on my Thanksgiving and Christmas table every year. Not only are Cranberries in Red Wine a great side dish to the main meal, they’re also a perfect component for festive holiday desserts like my Cranberry Linzer Tart.
I created this White Chocolate Cranberry Cheesecake especially for this #SundaySupper event, and boy am I glad I did. It’s absolutely delicious, if I do say so myself.
I’ll admit that I’m not the biggest white chocolate fan. In fact, white chocolate is not really chocolate at all since it doesn’t contain any chocolate liquor (that’s the cocoa mass that makes chocolate, chocolate). White chocolate is made from cocoa butter, milk solids, milk fat, vanilla and sugar.
But I do like white chocolate paired with a strong flavor that has some bitterness or acidity to offset the sweetness. I love white chocolate with coffee, citrus fruits and raspberry. Tart cranberries cooked in red wine are the perfect foil for the sweetness of white chocolate cheesecake and white chocolate ganache.
I wish you and yours a sweet holiday season full of love and dessert!
