This has been recognised as an official Lance Armstrong event.
LIVESTRONG Day is the Lance Armstrong Foundation's (LAF) grassroots advocacy initiative to unify people affected by cancer and to raise awareness about cancer survivorship issues on a national level and in local communities across the country. LIVESTRONG Day 2007 will occur on Wednesday, May 16th.
The McMichael family has been touched by cancer, and we are not alone in this. I don't think there are many families who have not. Cancer survivors know the true meaning of LiveStrong. We are learning day by day to Live Strong.
It is a small thing to do, but if one little blog can make a difference, we'll give it a try. I thought long and hard about what to post for something yellow. While we were at our friends home in Brevard, Linda had some homemade Limoncello, Yummy! I have a bottle in the freezer from our last trip to Italy... I need to use that up so I can make some of my own.
This is a limoncello cheesecake that is adapted from a basic cheesecake recipe from the cream cheese people themselves.
Crust1 cup gingersnaps
3 Tbs sugar
3 Tbs butter, melted
1 cup sugar
2 Tbs limoncello
1 Tbs lemon zest
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg white
3/4 cup sugar
2 Tbs cornstarch
1/2 cup water
3 Tbs limoncello
1 egg yolk
Mix crumbled cookies, sugar and melted butter. Press into a greased springform pan. Bake @ 325° for 10 minutes.
Mix all ingredients, except eggs, at a low speed just until blended. Add all eggs individually, mixing on low until blended. Pour onto crust. Tap to remove air bubbles. Bake at 300° for 55-60 minutes until center is just set. Cool in the oven for another hour. Run a knife around the edge to loosen before removing pan. Cool in the fridge 4 hours.
Mix sugar and cornstarch in a small sauce pan, add liquids slowly. Bring to a slow boil and stir until thickened. To incorporate the egg yolk, first stir a tablespoon of the hot liquid into the yolk- then add to the lemon mixture. Stir and heat until jellied. Cool before pouring over cheesecake.
