The Sweet Woodruff, a little aromatic plant growing in woods and near shady spots. In Germany, one of the specially delightful drinks ---- White Wine Punch/Maibowle (or Waldmeisterbowle, or Maiwein, or Maitrank) is prepared by steeping the fresh sweet woodruff and peppermints in white wine. They are drunk and enjoyed usually in May.
This no-bake cheesecake recipe is so creamy and delicious! A thick, silky smooth fresh German cheese and cream cheese filling in a buttery oat cookie crust, topped with fresh blueberries and a layer of sweet woodruff jelly. It’s an easy dessert recipe that will definitely please.

CrustFillingJelly Topping
  • 150 g Oat cookies
  • 70 g Butter, softened
  • 8 Gelatin sheets
  • 400 g Whipping cream
  • 500 g Quark, low-fat

  • 300 g Philadelphia cream cheese
  • 100 g Sugar
  • 1 package / 8 g Vanilla sugar
  • 100 ml Milk
  1. Combine cookies and softened margarine, then press into the bottom of a 26-cm baking pan with a removable bottom. Chill crust for 30 minutes. Beat whipping cream until stiff peaks form and store in the fridge until ready for use.
  2. Combine Quark, cream cheese, sugars and milk in a mixing bowl. Whisk until well combined and smooth.
  3. Soak gelatin sheets in cold water for 5 minutes until softened. Gently squeeze out excess water. Melt it in a heat proof bowl placed over simmering water until dissolved. Combine first 4 tablespoons of cheese mixture with the melted gelatin, then blend with the rest of cheese mixture until smooth. Fold in the whipped cream and until fully incorporated. Pour the cheese mixture over the crust and arrange the blueberries on top. Cover and refrigerate several hours or overnight.
  4. Whisk together sugar and jelly powder in a medium pot. Pour in the water and cook over the slow heat until the sugar is dissolved. Remove and turn the heat off. Pour 1/3 of the jelly into a square shallow dish. Press and push a cookie mould into the set jelly to create the “heart”. Pour the rest of cool jelly over the cheesecake. Place some heart-shaped jelly over if desired. To serve, loosen cheesecake and place it on a serving plate. Decorate the side with heart-shaped jelly.

Woodruff, as far as I know, doesn't grow in North America, though maybe it's cultivated. I have never seen it at farm stands with the usual selection of herbs. However, I remember MaiBowle served at the home of my German professor when I was in college. It seemed very exotic! I think she bought wine that was already flavored.

The cheesecake looks beautiful!

be well... mae at maefood.blogspot.com

Haven't used woodruff before, and it's not common in the US. I should ask Mrs KR to grow some -- she LOVES to garden. Then we could make this. :-)
