Tea Time- May 18, 2015 - with SnOw!

Victoria Day is usually the weekend we Manitobans head for the campgrounds and cottages, or have that  longed-for family picnic. Not this year! We have had strong winds, and rain changing to sleet and snow. So it might be a good idea to do a little baking...
I found a recipe for a simple cheesecake with a hidden fruit surprise in the filling.
 

 
I assembled the ingredients. I made a bing cherry filling using frozen cherries.
 

The recipe size was just right for my heart shaped spring form pan.
Time to steep a cup of fruit herbal tea and leaf through a copy of a summer-themed magazine and pretend we don't have snow on the ground!
The cup and saucer is Shelley Blue, one of my favorites.
 
Enjoy your day, wherever you are, and thanks to Sandi for hosting the weekly tea time. For more background on Victoria Day, Sandi has explained it very well.

Your Shelley blue teacup is very pretty and so dainty. And oh my, Millie, does your heart shaped cheesecake make me long for some! It looks absolutely decadent! You can't beat a good cheesecake and yours is so pretty. Those on a diet would be sorely tempted by it! Sorry to hear you have a little snow. We finally got rid of ours and does it ever feel good to look out the window and see the grass getting greener by the day. We've had a wonderful Victoria Day weekend and we certainly deserve it after the winter we've had! Nice weather at long last. Thank you for coming to tea. I'm always happy to have you join me!

Blessings,
Sandi

The weather has been strange, hasn't it? At least you could enjoy some summer in your tea! The Shelley Dainty Blue is one of my favorites. And your cheesecake looks fabulous! Hope it warms up a bit this week for you!
