I cannot lie, I LOVE cheesecake, and so does my son. So much so that this child who prefers not to cook unless it can happen in the microwave will actually make cheesecake from scratch!😲For those times when you want cheesecake but do not want to make it from scratch this week’s local business of the week has you covered – Zoe Ann’s Cheesecake
Owner Zoe Ann who everyone calls Zoe bakes all of the cheesecakes herself. She believes in quality over quantity. The reason she choose to start baking cheesecakes is that she believed a product that tasted AMAZING would make people happy.
In today’s world where everyone is watching what they eat, Zoe Ann knows that there are times when people want to splurge and when they do what they splurge on should taste amazing and use good ingredients. For this reason Zoe Ann uses Philadelphia brand cream cheese, butter, fresh heavy cream, nuts, liqueurs, pure extracts and fresh fruit. While these ingredients cost more she knows that they are what makes her cheesecakes taste so good!
She says, ” For instance, in our Coconut Cream cheesecake, we crack fresh coconuts, and use macadamia nuts in the crust. (Well, okay, I don’t personally crack the coconuts, my husband does that!) Our cheesecakes might seem a bit pricey, but when you consider the ingredients and labor involved in each and every flavor we offer, they are actually a good deal. Our cheesecakes are rich, creamy, and very satisfying. They are baked in small batches to ensure quality. I truly mean it when I use the phrase, quality over quantity, to describe my baking and business philosophy.”
All I can say is that, that coconut cream cheesecake sounds like something that needs to get in my belly (so long as it’s gluten free). So, the next time you’re sweet tooth is screaming at you give Zoe Ann’s Cheesecakes a try, and let me know what you think.
