CATABRIAN CHEESECAKES (Quesada Pasiega)

Quesada Pasiega is a crustless lemon -flavored cheesecake from the Cantabria region of Spain that is perfect as a light dessert or an afternoon snack. It is made with fresh farmer’s cheese, such as requesón or Burgos, but ricotta and cottage cheese are a good substitute. To serve, top with grated sugar-free dark chocolate or, if you prefer, fresh berries. For a more distinctive, traditional taste, sprinkle with cinnamon.

Oh the Holidays…. still wouldn’t change it for anything. However there comes such a time where we need to cut a corner or two to make this a successful holiday… long and behold the Trifle. Shout out to the English for inventing this cleaver, no fuss dessert. All of the flavor, none of the hassle. Skip the technical cakes and throw this ‘user friendly’ dessert down this Thanksgiving Holiday. All that is required for this particular dessert is a Trifle Bowl, easily found at most big box stores, if your can’t find one… get creative, use individual mason jars for a more personal feel. Let the games begin!
