Savory Basil Cheesecake Appetizer Preparation
Prep: 15 min, plus chilling time. Combine crumbs and butter in a bowl. Press into bottom of a lightly greased 8 or 9 inch springform pan. Chill. Combine basil, garlic and mayonnaise in food processor or blender until smooth. Set aside. Beat together 3 cheeses in a mixing bowl until well blended. Beat in reserved basil mixture. Spread mixture over crust, pressing and smoothing top. Chill at least 8 hours or overnight. When ready to serve, remove sides of pan and place cake on a platter. Press chopped toasted almonds onto sides of cheesecake, if desired. To garnish top of cheesecake, make `flower with slivered almonds and chive stems, if desired. Serve with assorted crackers, vegetable slices and toasts. Tip: Mascarpone cheese may be substituted for the ricotta for a smoother, milder flavor. For more cheese flavor, substitute half the Parmesan with Asiago cheese. Posted to recipelu-digest by molony
