End of a Season

Even though it's been shorts and sandals type of weather the past few days, summer officially ended about a week ago.  To say farewell, my last project with summer's harvest...

Nectarine Cheesecake w/ Blackberries [09.03.2010]

Usually cheesecake is rich and heavy, but using nectarines as a flavor base allowed me to lighten this one up both in flavor and texture from its tang and juice.  The crust is made with brown butter and infused with sage.  It's finished off with fresh blackberries and blackberry glaze.  My boyfriend really ate this one up!

Now let's see what autumn has to offer!
