Once upon a time I was a college chick. I had my own downtown Chicago apartment and a bunch of friends to share it with on the weekends. We partied like rock stars (sometimes even with them – HI LL COOL J! ), we ate bad food, and drank whatever we could afford – aka Mad Dog 50/50. (what the? blah!)
But on Sundays all that would change because I would step into the kitchen and work some magic! (And help out a few hangovers.) This was our weekend ritual; party from Thursday to Saturday, and eat Katerina’s food on Sundays.
One Sunday afternoon, while everyone was still asleep, I rolled out of bed and before I even brushed my hair, I went straight to the fridge (too much drinky drink the night before) because my mind was on one thing, and one thing only – cream cheese dessert… any cream cheese dessert. I was actually aiming for a cheesecake, but that didn’t happen because it was going to take too long – I needed to satisfy this craving ASAP.
I then went to my trusted recipe booklet (a Microsoft Word Document) and pulled up a recipe that I had copied down from a magazine. I have no idea what magazine it came from, but I still have the recipe and go to it whenever I am in need of something quick and delicious.
I ate two full servings before someone finally got up that morning and joined me for the other two. I had to make more for the rest of the crowd.
Thus if you are making this for company, double the recipe.
Get your ramekins ready and start – these only take about 30 minutes from start to finish!
***When eating this, push the teaspoon to the side – it’s best if you use the cookies to scoop out the mixture. MMMMM!
