This week, I baked Bittersweet Brownies (one of the TWD selections) and Hidden Berry Cream Cheese Torte (my catch-up recipe). First off, I got out lots of butter and eggs and allowed them to come to room temperature.

The Torte has a lovely pre-baked crust which is supposed to go up the sides of a spring form pan. It's chilled, then partially baked while lined with form-fitting foil and pie weights. What happened to my crust, however, was that the sides squished down so I couldn't pour in as much of the filling as I wanted to. There is a layer of cherry preserves on the crust, then the cream cheese/eggs/cottage cheese/vanilla filling.

A lovely week of baking! Next time, I'll try to remember to keep my camera handy.
