We’ve just finished carving our…

RICH & CREAMY MINI OREO CHEESECAKES


  Who ever said “good things comes in small packages” was spot on.  Especially when it comes to these dainty but very scrumptious Mini Oreo Cheesecakes.  I love-making cheesecakes at any time but these “bake in a muffin tin “mini” versions are a sheer delight to make. You get all the flavor and deliciousness of a regular baked cheesecake but…
