I know I told you about this in a past post called “Cheesecake for Dummies”. But I also know you guys have a short attention span and probably don’t remember. So here’s a fun, easy recipe and a great thing to take to any party. In this case, I had heard Sophie tell her Mom that she was going to a Friends-giving (apparently the hot trend now), and they had asked her to bring dessert. I love this one, because it looks so pretty on a platter, (I’m sure yours will be prettier than mine–and I am SURE Sophie’s will look like a work of art). But this is gorgeous with Blueberries too. It’s easy to eat, no utensils required, and watch how fast it disappears! You can make tiny one-biters, or regular cupcake sized.
1 8 oz. cream cheese (softened)
1/3 cup sugar
1 can Sweetened condensed milk
1 tsp. vanilla
Mix all thoroughly with a mixer. Drop a vanilla wafer in the bottom of each cupcake in a a cupcake pan. OR make a mixture of leftover cookies smashed up and drop a tbs. or so in the bottom as a crust. (you could even make a pretzel crust which I did tell you about in the dummies post. ) Fill each cup about 2/3 full. Bake at 350 about 15 minutes. ***Note: if you are making little Babies, they only cook about 11 minutes.
Totally Optional: (but I did it above). You can sweeten about a cup of sour cream or Mexican “crema” with approximately 1 Tbs. sugar and put a Tbs. or so on top of each cake. Then put a chunky spoonfull of blueberry or cherry pie filling (be sure you get about 3 cherries on each one).
Note and Disclaimer: There are NO calories whatsover in these little treasurers as long as you eat them between the hours of 6-7 am on Thankgiving day on years with odd numbers and in your jammies only!!! ask me how I know!
