Reese's Miniature Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake


It's Friday and I'm not babysitting today so I thought I would make somethin' in the kitchen. My daughter, Melody, saw a recipe for Miniature Peanut Butter Cup Cheesecake in my Cooking For Two magazine, so guess what we're making? That's right! Cheesecake! The only problem is, this recipe makes 6 individual size cheesecakes and lets face it, those would be gone in an hour, so we are "tweaking" the recipe a little and making quite a few more. Hey, I have to make some to share! 

Crust:
2  1/2 C. Graham Cracker Crumbs
1 Tbsp. Ground Cinnamon
1/2 C. Melted Unsalted Butter

Combine crust ingredients until "wet". Place a couple Tbsp. of this mixture into the bottom of each muffin cup and pack down with back of spoon.  Place crusts into a 350 degree oven for about 5 min.  Cool slightly before adding one Miniature Peanut Butter Cup to each muffin cup. 

Cheesecake Mixture:
2- 8oz. Pkgs. Cream Cheese
1 C. Whipping Cream
2 eggs
1/2 C. sugar 
1 Tsp. Vanilla Extract

Mix cream cheese until soft and workable.  Add eggs, 1/2 c. sugar and vanilla and mix until smooth. Add whipping cream slowly to avoid lumping. Pour batter over crust and peanut butter cups until just covered. Bake at 325 degrees for 20 minutes or until toothpick inserted in cheesecake comes out clean. Cool down then refrigerate prior to serving.
Makes about 36

Baby Shower Busy-ness

Ok, you probably thought I fell off the face of the earth right? Nope, there is just alot happening around here. The next event is Beckie's Baby Shower this Sunday. Decided to make my very first Diaper Cake and these are just a few of the pictures. The first thing I did was watch about 20 YouTube videos describing how to do it. Then I bought my supplies and put it together roughly first then more refined about a day later. This is a close up of the baby sock roses with mitten leaves. Yes, that video DOES exist! Next is a close up of wrist rattles and a little caterpiller radio that makes soothing sounds for baby. Background ribbon is from WalMart and the blanket set is from the Jungle Adventure Collection at K-mart. The topper for our "Jungle" themed cake is a Silver Back Ganz Gorilla . These little links slipped easily over the ribbon and added a little extra bling to the sides of the cake. Each layer consists of diapers along with extras like washcloths, burp pads and

Gratitude

Looky what came yesterday! My Word of the Year Necklace created by Lisa Leonard ! As the New Year approached I decided to choose a word that would define my upcoming year and I chose Gratitude. Around Thanksgiving, I set up my new blog, " I Am Thankful For..." and started keeping a daily journal of all the things I have to be Thankful, or Grateful for. Each day I would review my day in my head and list at least 5 things I had to be Grateful For. It has changed the way I approach each day tending to look for the positive instead of the negative in what life has to offer. If you'd like to find your word of the year, visit Christine Kanes' website  and pick a word of the year for yourself. Then I'd hop on over to the Lisa Leonard site and pick a wonderful necklace stating your intention for the year!

Norwegian Pancakes (Norska Pannekaken)

Every culture has its pancake and this is the Norwegian version, a very light, crepe-like pancake that goes with just about anything. These "pancakes" are light and eggy and go with both sweet and savory fillings. When my chickens start up laying eggs in the Spring, we LOVE to make these pancakes, freezing the excess for another day. Yes, they freeze and thaw perfectly! Most people have the simple ingredients on their shelves and in their refrigerators SO LET'S GO! Original Recipe Can Be Found on the Outside Oslo Website   Here .
