Cheesecake...

As American as apple pie and Kim K., the cheese cake is essentially curious deliciously rich, and can be made into a favorite late Sunday afternoon treat. Well, inspired by Jaque Pepin, I made this quintessential cake today, as our one year was taking his nap and our five year old was busy fighting enemies on naboo: Simple: 4 eggs, 4 packets of cream cheese, some lemon juice, some vanilla, and a cup of sugar... bake for an hour and stop. Let it rest for a while. Unmold. And dress. I used apricot jam as master Pepin likes, and also added cognac. Go heavy on the lemon rinds, since the smell and taste was just flagrant.
I liked it a lot. Enjoy (make sure you go heavy on the apricot jam).
