A sweet treat

A cheesecake with a christmas twist. The crust from crushed gingerbread cookies, the cream cheese flavored with cinnamon, cloves and ginger. A layer of gingerbread cookies in the middle adds texture and taste.

The recipe comes from a Swedish book, "Vinterns söta", a celebration of sweet treats by the Eisenman sisters. Recipes in this book suit me well, simple and no-fuss, but with delightful results. Lisa Eisenman Frisk and Monica Eisenman have written several cooking and baking books, all divinely beautiful.
