  1. Super easy cheesecake recipe to follow. I did however forget to bring the cream cheese to room temp before creaming it together for the first batch of cheesecake bites. I did it to the second batch and could tell a major difference in the texture of the cheesecake filling. The room temp cream cheese was much smoother. So don't forget to bring cream cheese to room temp before creaming it with the other ingredients. Other than that great recipe. I will try this one again. Thanks
  2. I used "Diget" cookies (a kind of round graham-like cookie) instead of cookie dough, and they turned out exactly like miniature cheesecakes, right down to the crust. Now every time I get out the cream cheese, my boyfriend wants to know if I'm making these!
  3. Kree, THESE WERE A HUGE HIT!! :) I topped 1/2 with and 1/2 without cherry stuff b/c I wasnt sure who would want it and who wouldnt. They went over very well, and I plan to make them again! Hopefully next time I'll get the chance to take a photo, but this time was just too rushed! LOL Thanks a lot for the recipe kree! Big hit! :)
  4. These were easy and delicious. I normally do not buy premade cookie dough but I made an exception for these. My 8 year old helped me and he liked eating them as well. They are good with or without the cherry topping. Thanks for an easy and tasty recipe!
  5. Delicious! Fast and easy to make! We loved them. Didn't even bother with the cherry pie filling.


  1. I've made these before but with nilla wafers instead of cookie dough. So good! I actualy lost the recipe so I'm so happy to find this here!


I'm a real estate agent in the lovely city of Rochester, New York. That's not what I expected to do with my life. I got my bachelor's in psychology, my masters in literacy education, and I taught high school special education for two years. Then I discovered that helping people find the homes of their dreams was my real passion. I've been doing it for over two years now and still absolutely love my career. Other than that, I have a very spoiled Border Collie mix named Bear that I adopted from a local shelter in spring '08. He's gorgeous and fun and brings me great joy. Now if only I could find a man like that... LOL!
