Opening number 21 and it's Recipe day!

It's my turn to open no 21, but before doing so - I would like to say Happy b'day Mom!!!Yes - it's my Mother's b'day and we hope to be able to see her later today - if the roads are cleared from all the snow. 

Before I give you the yummy recipe - here's my card that I hope will give you some last minute inspiration. I coloured little Peek-A-Boo Snowbaby with my copics.

DP from my local craft shop Pysselakuten. Added little stickle to give the card that extra spark and some flowers of course.

And what's for dessert? Well - this is a recipe that I actually found over at BBC Food (thanks to my friend Anne) and am I going to try it - OF COURSE!!!

Baileys and chocolate cheesecake

100g/3½oz butter
250g/8¾oz digestive biscuits, crushed
600g/1lb 5oz Philadelphia cream cheese
25ml/1fl oz Baileys
100ml/3½oz icing sugar
300ml/10½oz double cream, whipped
100g/3½oz grated chocolate

To garnish
200ml/7¼oz double cream, whipped
cocoa powder, to dust

Preparation method
1.Melt the butter in a pan and add the crushed digestive biscuits. Mix well until the biscuits have absorbed all the butter.

2.Remove from the heat and press into the bottom of a lined 18cm/7in springform tin. Place in the refrigerator and allow to set for one hour.

3.Meanwhile, prepare the filling. Lightly whip the cream cheese then beat in the Bailey's and icing sugar. Fold in the whipped cream and grated chocolate. When smooth, spoon evenly onto the biscuits.

4.Refrigerate and allow to set for a further two hours. Once set, remove and decorate with whipped cream and cocoa powder dusted over the top. Serve.
