Babycake cookbook

Well now I know I have been busy - for I just purchased my copy of the Babycake cookbook the other day.

This book is amazing!! 175 recipes!! I don't know where to begin. It has great desserts, breakfasts, lunches and dinner recipes as well as great snacks.
However I am still in a cheesecake craze so it will be one of those - probably pumpkin now that fall is here (yet feels like summer again). But mine will be with a gingersnap cookie crust and cinnamon whipped cream. YUMMY!!!

On to the kitchen to test some recipes!!

Happy Snacking!!

Cheesecake brownie bites

Since I have finally made the perfect little cheesecakes in my Babycake cupcake maker I'm on a little bit of a cheesecake kick.

I've been wanting to make these for a while and I'm so glad I did!
These are very decadent but delicious!!
One note in making these - timing is very important - as I suppose it always is when you're cooking.
But with these you don't want to over cook the brownie. They have to be semi cooked so you can add the the cheesecake batter so both will finish cooking together.

I have to admit I used a mix for the brownies. Sorry. But it is easier.

What you need:

Brownie mix of choice and ingredients to make them

8 oz. Cream cheese - room temp.
1 egg
1/4 cup sugar
1 teas vanilla

What you do:

Make the brownie mix according to the directions on the box.
Set aside.
Make the cheesecake batter.
Mix the cream cheese, egg, sugar, and vanilla in a medium size bowl. Set aside.
Put the paper liners in the Babycake cupcake maker. Spray each well with cooking spray so the cheesecakes won't stick.
Add about a teaspoon of the brownie batter to the liners. Cook for about 4-5 minutes - NOT all the way.

Now add about a tablespoon of cheesecake batter top the semi cooked brownies. Cook another 4-5 minutes until the cheesecakes are cooked. Take out and chill in the fridge overnight.

Happy snacking!
