After reading about Smearcase (german cheesecake) in a Baltimore Magazine article on the Chameleon Cafe, and realizing it's what I saw at a bakery in the newly opened Harborplace (yes, that was 1979), I got my in-laws to bring me one from the wonderful Fenwick Bakery on Harford Rd. Without even asking I knew they would carry Smearcase and sure enough.
Anyway, this stuff is great. For those who find cheesecake to be way too heavy, gummy, etc., Smearcase is perfect. Fenwick's is topped with a light dusting of cinnamon sugar.
Another all-star in the Fenwick lineup.
