My students proudly display their turkey cheese balls.
One of the many things I am very grateful for this Thanksgiving is the opportunity to work with this fantastic group of young people. These kids work with a zest and an intensity of purpose that I have rarely encountered. My goal for the class was for each student to leave feeling empowered to make something for Thanksgiving Dinner. After the class ended, I went home with a happy heart, knowing that the kids would be able to feel the pride of participating in the creation of their family’s dinner.
They worked in small groups. Their first undertaking was the Heath Bar Crunch Brownie Cheesecake, https://newclassicrecipe.com/?p=6302. I was so impressed with the care they gave to preparing this recipe. Since it is a cheesecake layered over a brownie, I was a little nervous about how it would work out. But everyone took their time, and the cakes turned out perfectly, as you can see in the above picture.
While the cakes were baking, we made a fun appetizer that can be served at Thanksgiving.
TIME TO PUT ON YOUR APRON!
If you are cooking this Thanksgiving, I hope you experience as much joy as I saw on my students’ faces.
Coming on Tuesday – Cranberry, Seed, and Grain Quick Bread.
