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.
