Scottie’s Goat Cheese Cheesecake Flavor Options

Posted: Updated:

Chocolate Cheesecake:

  • Add ½ cup of cocoa (more to taste) when you add the sugar and lemon. Mix well.
  • Add ½ cup of melted chocolate chips, cooled but still pourable after the previous step.  Mix well!  Pour in pans as instructed above!
  • Also, instead of using the ginger snap crust, just put a bag of Oreo cookies in the food processor and pulverize into a perfect crumb crust!  No need to add butter or sugar to the crumbs…the Oreo filling works nicely!

 

Raspberry Swirl Cheesecake:

  • When the mixture is ready to be poured into pan, only pour half of mixture then add your raspberry (or other flavor) puree to mixture and swirl lightly (don't try to completely mix it) for visual effect.
  • Pour rest of mixture over batter and repeat with the puree and swirl for visual effect.
  • Bake according to previous instructions.

 

Additional Ideas:

  • You can add your favorite fresh fruits to the chilled cheesecake for decoration and great variety of flavors.  Be creative!

 

  • Try adding chocolate shavings from your favorite chocolate bar like Hershey with Almonds, or Hershey's plain, Dark Chocolate, White Chocolate, etc.  You can either add it as soon as it comes out of the oven or garnish the top once chilled.

 

  • Helpful Hint:  The easiest way to shave the chocolate is with a vegetable peeler. The colder the chocolate, the smaller the shavings.  So if you want big shavings, keep the chocolate bar at room temperature.  If you want smaller, keep it in the fridge until you are ready to shave the bar.

 

  • Whipped Cream makes a great topping to the cheesecake.  Homemade whipped cream gives you more flexibility to add flavorings like some of the raspberry puree OR add some cocoa to the whipped cream and make it a delicious Light chocolate whipped cream!
