lemon cheesecake and poppyseed tartlets
I'm not going to lie - making these tarts was a pretty fiddly affair. Originally I thought about making this as a single cheesecake but I don't have a small springform tin. I did change the recipe a little as I only had large eggs in my fridge. I used 1 large egg and an additional egg white. I mixed the yolk into the cream cheese mixture then I beat the 2 egg whites until stiff then folded them into the cheesecake mixture.
I had a little bit of filling left over so I baked it in a paper cupcake liner and it was delicious. Tangy, light and fluffy. Unfortunately these little tarts were too rich for me but they went down really, really well with my workmates, in fact they waxed lyrical over them.
So my crush with Yotam Ottolenghi continues. Expect some more of his recipes in the coming weeks.
See you all again on Wednesday with a shopshoot,
