Mitch and I are both very busy today. Mitch is helping dad in the workshop. The sheathing is on the cupola and the lead is being nailed on. The corner boards go on next and then the clapboards.
Keep a watchful eye and make sure he's doing it right, Mitch!
Mom and I are busy baking Pineapple Cheesecake for Christmas day tomorrow.
This is the cheesecake's crust -
2 cups of graham cracker crumbs
1 1/2 Tablespoons of sugar
3 Tablespoons of butter, melted
Combine above ingredients. Mix well and press into the bottom of a 10-inch pan. We're using a tube pan.
3 8-ounce packages of cream cheese, softened
1 cup sugar
1 8 1/4 ounce can crushed pineapple, drained
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
Beat cream cheese till light and fluffy. Gradually add the sugar, beating well. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add the drained pineapple, the lemon juice and the lemon rind into the cheese mixture.
We can't let any of this cream cheese go to waste!
Bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour and 15 minutes.
So until next time............
Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch
