For my annual Christmas coffe I decided to make a cheesecake with ris a la mande as the theme. I had seen various recipes on such type of cheesecake. I decided to this recipe as staring point, which I when adjusted to my preferences.
Both Christmas coffee guests as well as my colleagues really liked the taste and the colour variation, so every single piece were eaten with great pleasure.
I am planning to make another cheesecake with New Year as theme for the next time, when I have guests coming around for the annual Christmas lunch for fantastic women.
