This weekend is Cooks Choice weekend and that means we can make a recipe from Mimi that we missed or even choose another French Cookbook to cook from. I decided to make Vanilla Cheesecakes with Fresh Strawberry Compote from Le French Oven by Hillary Davis. Delicious!
Hillary Davis knows a lot about French cuisine and has several French cookbooks out. I was thrilled to receive this one when it first came out to do a review. The review is also here on my blog. This cookbook is all about cooking in French dutch ovens and mini cocottes, which these cheese cakes were made in.
I only had one complaint about these cheese cakes hubby and some of the family missed them not having a crust. The compote was on the sweet side, but when eaten with the cake and a fresh sliced strawberry on top it worked. If you have time be sure and check out some of Hillary Davis’ cookbooks as they are filled with delightful recipes.
