Mondays with Monica...and Cheesecake

What better way to start off your week then with some creamy and delicious cheesecake. Mmmm. Recently I had the opportunity to try some mini cheesecakes from The Confectional. The Confectional is a boutique bakery located in historic Pikes Place Market of Seattle, Washington. They specialize in baked cheesecakes and cheesecake truffles. Oh wow, are their cheesecakes good! They come in a variety of flavors like Coconut Cherry Chocolate and Mochaccino. I tried several of the flavors and I have to say the Lemon White Chocolate was one of the tastiest. All of their mini cheesecakes with the exception of the Sugar-Free Seattle's New York-Style are creamy with a thick and crumbly graham cracker crust. They are about the size of a cupcake, decadent and filling. I know your probably wondering why sugar free...I was curious. The Sugar-Free had a much more grainy texture with a slight after-taste.  I suppose if you are trying to cut back on your sugar but are craving cheesecake this will satisfy that craving. I tried it after already trying their regular cheesecakes and it left much to be desired.

Here is a picture of the Cookies & Mint Chocolate. Is it making your mouth water too? The Confectional cheesecakes can be purchased online and shipped right to your front door. You can purchase them in boxes of 20 for $60.75, 16 for $54.00, and 9 for $32.00 and come shipped with ice packs to keep them cool and fresh. Unfortunately they do not ship their Cheesecake Truffles so if you are ever in Seattle visiting Pikes Place Market you gotta stop by and let me know if they are as good as their cheesecakes. Until next time...
