I am planning Mexican chocolate chip cookies in the Amoretti Test Kitchen this morning, and if I have enough time this afternoon, a batch of Kahlua brownies with brown butter icing, made with Amoretti Kahlua type syrup instead of the liqueur, so they will be halal.

Danishes! With scratch made raspberry filling, cream cheese filling, and vanilla bean glaze. And my secret weapon, trader joes puff pastry! (Their pie crust is another favorite of mine when I'm feeling lazy). Click image for larger version

I haven't actually baked anything YET, but I have made some dog biscuit dough and put it in the freezer. I also am making some no knead clover rolls. The dough is still rising. I will bake 1/2 a dozen and freeze the rest.

Got mom into the kitchen and we made apple pie together. We filled a bowl with apples and I told her to make up the filling like she always had, then we topped the filling with chopped walnuts before putting on the top crust. Then she whipped up a loaf of banana bread. The house smells wonderful!

It's been a very long time since I was able to bake with mom. She baked all the time when I was a kid, but after they started the business and dad got sick, there was no time to do it, and she was just so tired she didn't want to. I'm hoping to spark her cooking bug, since she will soon have a brand new house and lots of time to do it in her retirement.

SO made and decorated a batch of sugar cookies this afternoon. The Christmas cookies are done for this year.

I made some clover yeast rolls. I made the dough yesterday and made 3 6-count muffin pans of rolls. I baked one and froze the other two. I was worried about how they would try out after freezing. I pulled them out awhile before cooking to thaw and rise and they came out great! BF was moaning whie chewing these rolls with some honey butter. :)

I also made a cut down version of PrincessFiona's pumpkin cheesecake. I put them in mini muffin cups with no crust. Did not come out as I had hoped. I am sure it I did something awfully wrong to get my results.

Tell exactly what you did with the cheesecakes and we most likely can tell you where you went wrong. What were your results would also help. A picture of them would be of great assistance. I know. No one want to publish their failures. But we even have a professional baker here. So someone will have an answer.

If I was going to do mini muffin cups for cheesecake, I would do them in paper, foil or silicone cups. Otherwise they are stuck in the pan. The baking time would be too long for the minis, too! Actually I would likely bake them in ramekins and serve them that way.
