Sugar Rush: Pecan Crusted Cheesecake from Big Girl Baking Co.

The debate over cheesecake in New York is as heated as the one over barbecue down South. Carmela’s Cheesecake is definitely a contender according to Serious Eats:

Sugar Rush: Pecan Crusted Cheesecake from Big Girl Baking Co.

Posted by Robyn Lee, February 27, 2009 at 4:15 PM

The miniature pecan crusted cheesecake ($5) from Big Girl Baking Co. tastes less like cake, more like mousse. Although it’s made of your typical rich cheesecake ingredients—including cream cheese, sour cream, sugar, eggs, and butter—it has a light, fluffy, and creamy texture that makes it dangerously easy to eat in one sitting. Hell, in one minute. The sweetness is just right and the flavor is accented by thin layers of crushed pecans on the bottom and top. You can order these cakes from Big Girl Baking Co.’s website or by calling 877-721-3644 to be delivered in New York City up to southern Westchester County.

Big Girl Baking: Family Recipe for Success

Please see the nice write up on Big Girl Baking Co. in the Feb. 18 edition of the New York Times. Many thanks to Ms. Fabricant!

Big Girl Baking: Family Recipe for Success

By FLORENCE FABRICANT
Published: February 17, 2009

Aimee, Regina and Jody Milano all left corporate jobs to bake together, something the sisters had done while growing up in Yonkers.

Now, their company, Big Girl Baking in Bronxville, N.Y., turns out buttery, homey cookies like chocolate mocha chip or ginger and black forest chunk.

Their chocolate shortbreads (sables du chocolate) are dense and their biscotti are more tender than crisp, thanks to cornmeal in the dough. Most of the cookies, sold at biggirlbaking.com, are $17 to $18 a pound.

They also bake small, ethereally light pecan crusted cheesecakes, $3 each, which can be delivered in New York City and in southern Westchester County (they are too delicate for shipping).

They can be ordered by calling (877) 721-3644 or via the Web site.

The Original Little Big Girl

What better way to initiate our blog than by introducing you to the little girl who is the original Big Girl. We love the unabashed glee she brings to her mixing chores, licking her lips in anticipation of licking the bowl. She’s only two years old in this picture, it’s Thanksgiving and it’s a pumpkin pie, by the way. She’s so very happy in this moment and she’s already hooked. A big wide world of cookies, cakes and pies awaits her and she also will  learn that there is something so satisfying, almost meditative, in the rituals and rhythms of baking. But that will all come later.  For right now, there is the warm kitchen, fragrant with the scents of cinnamon and allspice; there’s mommy close by, rolling out pie crust on the kitchen counter and there is joy…and truth in baking.

We are three sisters: Jody, Aimee and Regina and we’re Big Girl Baking Co.  We’ll take turns writing and we look forward to sharing with you.
