Zain’s Cheesecake Spread
I brought this mess of a dessert to a friend’s place for a party not so long ago. She is so used to seeing my perfectly crafted desserts, that she was a little surprised at the site of this heaping plate of strawberry-raspberry coulis covered mush.
Her face was priceless. She was like dude, are you serious?
Then she took a bite. A second later, she looked like she got shot in the a$$ by cupid himself. I have had to make this dip for every one of her parties since.
Cheesecake lovers, this one’s for you.
