Do you love cheesecake like I do?! I love it, but I don’t like paying the high price for it at some of these fancy smancy restaurants. Here’s an easy way to get your cheesecake on, and impress your next dinner guests or give to your neighbor so your thighs still love you in the morning. Sorry neighbor. 🙂

Cookie Dough Cheesecake

cookie dough cheesecake

Ingredients For Crust:

Cookie dough, homemade or store bought (I used homemade)

Ingredients For Original Cheesecake:

  • 3 eggs
  • 3 packages 8 oz. each cream cheese
  • 1 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tabelspoon sugar
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons lemon rind, minced

Ingredients For Sour Cream Topping

  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar 

Extra Toppings

  • 1/4 cup Walnuts, chopped
  •  1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips, reserve 1/2 cup for melting
  • 1 teaspoon butter (to melt with chocolate chips)

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a 9 inch spring form pan, press enough cookie dough on the bottom and up the sides of the pan, set aside.
  3. In a standing mixer, beat cream cheese, vanilla, sugars, lemon rind and lemon juice well. Next, beat in eggs, scrapping down sides if needed.
  4. Pour cheesecake batter into cookie dough lined spring form pan. Bake 45-50 minutes in a preheated 350 degree F. oven Or until toothpick inserted into the middle comes out clean. Remove from oven and let cool completely before topping with sour cream. Meanwhile let’s make the sour cream topping by beating together the sour cream and powdered sugar in your standing mixer.
  5.  Once cheesecake is cooled, pour sour cream mixture over cheesecake and frost. Top with 1/2 cup chips and chopped nuts. Melt remaining 1/2 cup semi sweet chips with 1 teaspoon butter in the microwave for about 30 seconds. Continue with five second intervals stirring until chips are melted. Pour melted chocolate in a sandwich sized ziploc bag and cut a small hole in the corner, drizzle all over the top of the cheesecake.  Place cheesecake in the refrigerator and refrigerate over night. Enjoy!

No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Waffle Bars by Tiffany

I can’t even begin to tell you how much fun I’ve had concocting recipes with Eggo waffles this week.

When I was loading up on Eggo waffles, to start developing recipes,  I came across Eggo Wafflers, Strawberry Strudel flavor – I knew right away what I was going to do. The image of these bars just popped in my head. I literally saw them in my mind and knew I just HAD to make them.

Eggo Week Of Waffles, No Bake Strawberry Cheesecake Waffle Bars, Dessert Recipes, Eggo Chief Waffle Officer,Money Saving Recipe Gone are the days when waffles were served only for breakfast. Here’s a spectacular dessert that will be sure to turn heads and bring smiles. Plus, from start to finish they only took 30 minutes to make. Between a layer of strawberry strudel wafflers you will find a no bake cream cheese filling with fresh sliced strawberries, dunked in chocolate and then rolled in nuts.  Mmmm!

Yields 8 bars

Ingredients

  • 1 box (10.7) Eggo Wafflers Strawberry Strudel
  • 8 oz cream cheese, room temp.
  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 cup fresh whipped cream – Recipe below
  • Approx. 8 strawberries from a one pound package, washed, hulled and sliced
  • 1 bag (11.5 oz)  milk chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts – walnuts, pecans or chopped/sliced/slivered almonds

Fresh Whipped Cream

  • 2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar

Directions

  1. Toast wafflers per package directions. Remove from toaster and set wafflers on a cooling rack. Set aside. Do not let them cool on a plate, because condensation may occur on the bottom of wafflers.
  2. Let’s make the fresh whipped cream. In a standing mixer combine whipping cream and 1/2 cup powdered sugar, beat until stiff. Spoon out whipped cream into a separate bowl, set aside. No need to wash out mixing bowl.
  3. Now let’s make the cheesecake filling. In your standing mixer combine cream cheese, 1 cup powdered sugar and 1 cup whipped cream; beat until smooth. Place bowl in the fridgerator until ready to use.
  4. In a double boiler, melt milk chocolate. Once chocolate is melted turn off heat.
  5. Line a medium to large baking sheet with a piece of waxed paper. Set aside.
  6. Let’s assemble these babies, shall we?! Gently cut or separate wafflers. Spread cheesecake mixture on the inside of each waffler. Now lay a layer of strawberries down the center. Put the second waffler on top to make a sandwich. Dip one end of the bar in melted chocolate and sprinkle with nuts. Lay bars on waxed paper lined baking sheet. Refridgerate bars until chocolate sets or ready to serve.

*****NOTES*****

You will have approx. 3 tablespoons of melted chocolate left over and approx. 1 cup of the cheesecake filling.  Since you only use approx. 8 strawberries from a one pound package for this recipe, we just used  up the remainder strawberries by dipping our left over berries in the chocolate and cheesecake filling. Mmmm!

Disclaimer Eggo supplied the tools needed to create the recipes show above and a stipend.

graduation pops It is that time of year again… Graduation time!  Lots of parties and memories to be made!  If you are looking for a festive fun little treat to bring the party, take a peek at these Graduation Hat Pops. They are quick and easy and lets face it CUTE as can be.  Plus you can make them in lots of colors to make them fit your school colors.

graduation pops

To make these you will need:

  • Mini M&Ms
  • Mini Reeses (come in a bag in the candy bar section of the store)
  • Mini Hershey’s plain chocolate bars (came in an 8 pack in the candy section)
  • Air Head Extremes
  • Sucker sticks

graduation pops2

Start by  unwrapping you mini chocolate bars and cutting them into 2 squares.  You will have one skinny piece left over save that to melt for putting them together.  You do not need them all so if you need a chocolate fix go ahead and eat one 🙂

1

 Take the skinny piece of chocolate left over and melt it so you can use it as “glue” to put your caps together.  I put mine in a glass bowl for 3o seconds, they do not look melted but once you touch it, it is soft and melted.  Gently twist the sticking into the wide end of the reeses mini.  Then dip the skinny end in chocolate and “glue” it to the bottom of the square piece of chocolate.  You will want to make sure you stick it to the side with words, so the smooth side will be the top of your cap.

graduation pops

If you are in a hurry put them in the freezer to harden the chocolate, I just let them set a few hours then came back to finish after the chocolate had set.

graduation pops1

Use scissors to cut the air heads into thin sections, attach them with melted chocolate to the top of the cap.  Top it off with a mini M&M.  I made a stand to hold mine out of scrapbook paper and a styrofoam block.
