I like to bake something that is not popular at the market, indeed,it was hard to find fresh fig at the supermarket here! I know there’s dry figs everywhere but I like to use the fresh one with my 40th cheesecake. I was airing my problem to my consultant and he’s kind of …

you’re crazy! why doing all of these cheesecakes! ( nope, there was no eyes movement but I saw some faint smile on his lips)

aha! I think you know where I can find fresh fig? don’t you?

he chuckled !

Oh! please only few pieces will do!

Crazy!

end of conversation…I’m smiling..he is smiling and you’re smiling..I know!

Ladies, this cheesecake is very light and not too sweet, good for an afternoon tea with friends. Just for the record, I gave my consultant a small slice of this mini cheesecake, like a teaspoon in size (just for a taste) and he still uttered the word “crazy” 🙂 hahaha I know he likes it! Maybe I should just name this as “crazy cheesecake” 😉

Cheers,
