Mini Cheesecakes

Also known as: "Don’t’ Rule Out These Mini Cheesecakes" Please tell me I am not the only one who has a list of rules when dating someone. Please tell me I am not the only who’s list keeps getting longer the older I get. Here are a couple of my dating rules – • Do not show me the engine of your car, no matter how cool you think it is. Unless you are storing a box of chocolates under the hood, I just don’t care. • Do not talk about your various surgeries while I’m eating my Caesar salad. I think these seem like reasonable requests. One rule is for sure: “Bake These Mini Cheesecakes”! They are fabulous and a real crowd pleaser! Courtesy of The Happy Baker, Erin Bolger.
