Petite Cheesecake by Sarah Lamb(624 views)
Still-life oil painting of a small cheesecake resting atop a napkin on a ledge. The cheesecake has a Graham cracker crust which covers its bottom half while the top half is fully the Neufch?tel cheese that is the hallmark of a true New York cheesecake. Atop the cheesecake rests a pyramid of decadence: Ascending, a row of cut strawberries, mint, blueberries, and rich cream topped with a sprig of mint.
