Easy-to-prepare Desserts

When someone mentions cheese desserts, the first thing you think of is cheesecake. But today we’ll introduce some new cheese dessert recipes, all delicious and all easy to prepare with Castello Havarti.

These sweet-tasting recipes all feature the rich, mild flavor of Castello® Havarti Creamy cheese…

Grilled pears with Castello Havarti Creamy cheese: Cut 6 pears lengthwise, place them on a tray and bake in a preheated oven until soft on both sides. In the meantime, mix a ¼ cup of brown sugar with a ¼ cup of peeled almonds. Remove the pears from the oven, sprinkle with a little sugar and almond mixture and cover with a small slice of Castello® Havarti Creamy cheese. Return the pears to the oven until the cheese melts, then serve with honey.

Apples with Castello Havarti Creamy cheese: In a bowl, mix 2 diced apples with 200 g of diced Castello® Havarti Creamy cheese, ½ a teaspoon of cinnamon powder and 2 tablespoons of brown sugar. In another bowl, mix a cup of flour, a 1/3 cup of melted butter, a 1/3 cup of brown sugar and a pinch of salt. Rub the mixture by hand until granulated. In a buttered tray, spread the apple mixture and then evenly cover with the flour mixture. Bake in a preheated oven for about 25-30 minutes until the surface is golden. Serve with vanilla ice cream.

Cake slices with Castello Havarti Creamy cheese: Cut a plain cake into slices and place a slice of Castello® Havarti Creamy cheese on each with a little grated chocolate and lemon zest. Place the slices in a buttered tray and bake in a preheated oven until the cheese and chocolate melt. Garnish with fruit such as strawberries, cherries or cranberries, and serve.
