Hello everyone! I decided to start some Christmas baking today and thought I would make a cheesecake. I usually use my aunt’s recipe but it was lost when she moved recently. I thought I would get a recipe from one of the many sites online.
I got out my trusty old Kitchenaid mixer that I love!
This is where it all went wrong!
I’ve seen on cooking shows when using eggs that they are broken in a bowl first and then poured into a mixture, however…I was in a hurry and felt like an iron chef and decided to crack them over the mixer. That’s how one egg shell fell in the batter and was mixed up with all the wonderful cheese and sugar!
I quickly stopped the mixer and…held back the tears…all that wonderful cream cheese, ten dollars worth!
After I regained my compsure, I proceeded to wade through the batter and tried to pick out all the eggshells. I’m still hoping I got them all out.
Set upon a baking pan ( this is my old crusty trusty one)
Placed in a preheated oven for 40-50 minutes at 350 degrees
I removed it from the oven and let it cool and then refrigerated overnight.
I won’t bother you with the recipe because I used a combination of two!
Suffice it to say, it was pretty close to the recipe that comes on the package of Philadelphia cream cheese.
It looks great but I hope I got all those eggshells out!

It looks positively delicious! I'd love a kitchen aid. It's on my wish list!:) Sonia
Ack! What a fun little story. Hopefully, you'll get the piece w/eggshell in it 😉 If not, who cares?! Hey, thanks for following me! Happy Xmas prep!
Your pictures are lovely! I like your mixer, jars, and the topiary. I am your newest follower. *hugs*
Your cake looks lovely. Don't worry, they'll never know those eggshells are in there. I speak from experience!
Well it looks great regardless! I am getting a kitchenaid mixer for Christmas- soooo excited!
It looks delicious! At least you have no cracks on the top (that's what usually happens to me!).
I like your kitchen counters. Are they Corian?
It looks really good and not to worry about the eggshells they will be too busy enjoying to notice! 🙂
Enjoy and have a wonderful weekend!!

Don't worry about the egg shells. More fiber! I bet it's mighty tasty!
You have inspired me to crank up the Kitchen Aid mixer and make a cheesecake for my hubby ~ it's his favorite! Glad I stopped by and that Brenda gave me the heads up! Stop by and visit when you can.

Looks great! Just discovered your lovely blog…I am a new follower!
This is so funny. I am sure the mixer broke up any left over shells into tiny peices that could never be seen or tasted. It looks delicious regardless. Thanks for becoming a follower on my new blog. Happy holidays,

I want one of those kitchen aids! The cheesecake looks scrumptious. How did it taste? Any crunchy bits?

My husband makes a gourmet cheesecake that is just incredible. It has a few different layers. I have never made it but he does every year. We LOVE it!
Yours looks great. Hope there are no crunchies in it. 🙂
