happy halloooOOooooOoOooweeeEeeEeeeEn!

Today is the 31st of October.. and you know what that means... its officially Halloween! To celebrate we've found this deliciously creepy recipe for you from www.countryliving.com


Ingrediants

Crust: 

1/2 Cup of Ground Chocolate Wafers 
4 Tablespoons of Sugar
5 Tablespoons of melted butter 

Filling 

2 packages of softened cream cheese
1 Cup of Sugar
2 Large Eggs
1 teaspoon of grated orange zest 
1 Cup of sour cream 
Yellow Food Colouring 

Directions 

1. Heat oven to 350°F. Grease a 9-inch tart pan with removable bottom.

2. Combine cookie crumbs, sugar, and melted butter in a medium bowl; stir well. Press crumbs evenly onto bottom and sides of prepared tart pan. Bake until fragrant and lightly toasted, about 7 to 10 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool. Reduce oven temperature to 325°F.


3. Beat cream cheese and sugar in a medium bowl, until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition and making sure to scrape sides of the bowl. Add orange zest and sour cream and beat until just blended.

4. Add 4 drops of yellow food coloring and stir well to blend. Remove 1/2 cup of the cheesecake batter and place into a small bowl. Add 5 drops of yellow food coloring to the 1/2 cup batter and stir well. Spoon into a resealable bag.

5. Pour light yellow batter into baked tart crust and smooth top. Snip a very small corner from bag with darker yellow batter. Pipe random spots of batter on top of the tart in a variety of sizes to make the cheese holes. Bake tart until lightly puffed and center is just set, 30 to 35 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack; cool completely. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving. Serve with Chocolate Rats.
