Cheesecake is a cake-like pie, which usually contains the kesam (or another unsalted cream cheese), egg, milk and sugar.
Already in Roman antiquity, a type of cheesecake was made of sour cream and kesame. Recipes have been retrieved from Cato the Elder’s collection, where he refers to two types: libum and placenta. Of the two, the placenta resembles most modern cheesecakess, since it has a crust that is baked separately.

When I found this book at a flea marked last month I almost dropped it right back in the cardboard box I found it in. The cover is so badly designed that I thought “Not bloody likely”. Luckily I leafed through it and found that it was crammed with decent recipes and good photos. I refuse to believe that the inside was designed by the same person who designed the cover – Ted 😉
A recipe for some clessic tea cakes found on about.com/food/
These are a little sweeter than some recipes for tea cakes, but they are delicious. The addition of a small amount of brown sugar gives them that extra bit of sweetness and flavor.
A classic Christmassy buffet pâté from “Forretter” (Starters)
published by Hjemmets Kokebook Klubb in 1982.
As I’ve mentioned before, Scandinavian Christmas buffets are serious stuff, copious dishes and nothing but the best. These chicken pâtés would fit right in on such a buffet.
A recipe by Chef Dee found on food.com
Chef Dee’s Note:This is the best toffee I have ever tasted. It is a popular item at the Christmas Farmer’s Market here, and with just 4 ingredients it’s easy to make. I prefer to decrease the cooking time slightly for a softer toffee.
A traditional griddle cake recipe found on the popular food site MatPrat
* “Lapper” are small pieces of paper or fabrics. To write someone a “lapp” means to write someone a note, and passing “lapper” is frowned upon in school (passing notes between students without the teacher knowledge). “Lapper” is also a traditional Norwegian pancake-like griddle cake not unlike “Sveler” that I posted about the other day – Ted
