Sacrificial animal crackers.
Just one question...
Why did it take me so long to make this?
I made Baking Illustrated Lemon Cheesecake (also found online here) this weekend. My first real cheesecake made in a water bath! Whoo hoo!
here), I was all for this. (Except for the fact that animal crackers are expensive now - $1.50 per box at my janky Ralphs.)
Answer me this riddle...when did the fuzzy marsupial koala bear get into the Barnum's Animal Cracker box?! What the heck? I get the tigers, bears, elephants and perhaps a polar bear (oh my), but a koala?! Is this the new cirque de outback circus? Not to diss the adorable koala, but what exactly does it do in the circus? Trapeze? Leap through a ring o' fire? Sarah Palin-like playing flute? I thought koalas only sleep, eat and look cute. Anyway, if you've seen a koala at your circus, let me know. And it didn't really matter anyway, because I ground him and his friend up into little crumbs!
I also made a lemon curd for the topping. I think I'm going to marry lemon curd. I just love you so.
