Best Sweet Treat: Moondance Heavenly Desserts Cheesecake
This tiny treat packs a punch of flavor and decadence. After feeling so disheartened and discouraged by not finding clear winners in traditional bakery categories, I wanted to see how fellow Cincinnatian, Shelley Ritchie, faired compared to the big dogs. She crushed them. The crust is made primarily with nuts and brown rice flour and resembles something like a caramelized cookie. The cheesecake filling is simple, tangy, light, and fluffy. Moondance is actively increasing their national distribution, especially amongst Whole Food Stores. There are varieties to tempt anyone, but here, I sampled the raspberry ribbon cheesecake.
