I love cheesecake and I don’t discriminate.

    Oh my….I can’t wait to try these out. I love cheesecakes but doesn’t always got the time to bake the whole cake. And with too much left over is never a good thing. These are perfect little bites to ease the cravings and to keep the portion in a more manageable manner. Love it.

  • Evelyne@cheapethniceatz says:

    Really adore this fusion dessert, if you will, with cheesecake and cookies. Makes it so much easier to do and to travel with. But I may eat them all before I get anywhere.

    This is a solid point. One I didn’t think about while gobbling them down last night as a midnight snack, lol!

    Precisely my sentiment. This means more cheesecake all the time, not a bad deal, eh?
