A acorn Cheesecake Recipe

Danger Duke had been kind to send me some acorn flour he had made so I decided to make acorn cheesecake with it. I had been looking for a recipe everywhere but couldn’t find one, so I fell back on my culinary training (which is none). So I grabbed some supplies.

And dumped a cup and a half of acorn flour in a bowl.

Image

I put in a teaspoon of ginger

Image

and a quarter cup of brown sugar

Image

I added a egg for binding the flour

Image

and 2 tablespoons of honey

Image

and melted 2 tablespoons of butter and added that as well

Image

I mixed the dough and it was crumbly, I was kind of going for a modified grahm cracker crust

Image

I didn’t have a spring form, so I took a pie plate

Image

and lined it with aluminum foil

Image

I oiled the foil and then dumped the crumbled dough into the pan

Image

and used my hand to form a pie shell, I stuck it in the oven for 350 for 10 mins just to firm it up some

Image

while the crust was in the oven I dumped 2 cups of the cream cheese I had made in a bowl and one cup of sugar

Image

I added a cup of the greek yogurt I had made

Image

and 2 eggs

Image

a tablespoon of vanilla

Image

and whisked it up

Image

I was going to make a topping, but instead decided to just add it into the mix, so I dumped a cup and a half of strawberries in I had dehydrated over the summer

Image

and mixed well

Image

since I added the strawberries, I added a extra egg since they would start sucking moisture out of the filling

Image

I whisked it up good and grabbed the cooled pie crust

Image

and added the filling

Image

I stuck it in the oven that had been preheated to 350 and a pan of water

Image

and baked it for 40 minutes or so until the top started to crack open a little

Image

I set it outside to cool and it slowly deflated

Image

it smelled awesome, I stuck it in the fridge to cool

Image

after it cooled, I sliced it up

Image

Image

the strawberries were nice and tender

Image

the crust held together well, it almost has a hazelnut taste to it
