Cheesecake and More

For my grandson's christening we served cheesecake from Manny's Cheesecake in Utica, New York. It was hard to choose between the different flavors. We finally settled on Amaretto with sliced almonds which means we had to pass up chocolate, chocolate chip and raspberry and could also have had fruit toppings. I was surprised that the cheesecakes had no crust and they came in 6 different sizes.

There were also fruit turnovers, cookies and tarts. I can't resist almond crescents made with almond paste. The photo is of a vanilla pustie which is a pastry with a custard center. The pastry was a combination of a sweet roll and pastry. They also came in chocolate and peanut better. The unusual texture with the creamy filling was a hit with me.
