Yeah I know it's little bit too late. But it's never to late for sweet things in your life, you know?
And Children's Day is all about sweets. Each country has something that is connected with childhood more than rest of the dishes. For many it will be something sweet, for some something savory.
I had many good memories from my younger years. Many family celebrations. Many parties.
On one of my favorite pictures from childhood I jump on a bad with my cousins and has something big and square in a hand. Something dark, almost black. And you know what? It was whole bar of chocolate - that is what I call happy childhood ;)
Now, being older and maybe little smarter I know that, although great, it's more out there in culinary world that a simple bar of chocolate. Many desserts, wonderful cakes and cookies, many treats.
So grab your kid, or If you had no kid your sister/brother/neighborhood kid, and bake those sweet individual cheesecakes.
Caramel cheesecakes(for16-20 muffin tins cheesecakes):
500 gram of cottage cheese (You can use cream cheese if you prefer)
380 gram of ready caramel
50 gram of flour
1-2 tablespoon of butter
pinch of sea salt
optional - any nuts you love
Preheat oven 180C/320F
Oh I really don't know what to write. Seriously it's the simplest cake ever. Just mix cheese with caramel until smooth. Still mixing add butter, flour - spoon by spoon, and eggs. Season with a sea salt. Of course you can make those with any base you want but sometimes I prefer just plain cheesecake. Pour cake mixture into paper muffin cups - leave few millimeters for growing. Now - you could sprinkle them with nuts.
Place in oven and bake 25-35 minutes, until they will darken. Leave for cooling in the oven, without opening (that prevent falling).
