Fresh Herb-Chèvre Cheesecake

Fresh Herb-Chèvre Cheesecake is a simple way to indulge in a few spring gifts. Chives, parsley & rosemary gently flavor this savory appetizer & blend beautifully with the tangy notes from the goat cheese while fresh lemon brightens the nibble. Serve with blanched & chilled haricot verts or green beans, English cucumber slices & a variety of crackers for interest. A spritzer served in goblets is the perfect beverage to accompany it. Although the batter is baked in 3 {4-inch} springform pans, it may easily fit into one 6-inch springform pan so be sure to increase the bake time by 25 minutes or so or until it is just set in the center. Learn how to make this delicious appetizer ideal to serve for Easter celebrations & all throughout the year.

How To Purchase & Store English Cucumbers 

One of the benefits of an English cucumber is that the seeds need not be removed as in the case of more traditional varieties. They may be grated & added to dressings or sauces, sliced for salads & arranged on platters for use with dips & spreads.

Available throughout the year, English cucumbers may be found wrapped in plastic in the produce department of the market. When purchasing, they should measure approximately 12-inches or so in length & should feel firm from end to end. Avoid vegetables that have small soft spots throughout & note whether decay is beginning at either end of the cucumber. Once home keep the cucumber wrapped in the original plastic for storage & remove just a small amount for slicing the amount of the vegetable you plan to use. Rinse it under cool water before preparing further for recipe applications. Expect a shelf life of approximately 7 to 10 days.
