Valentine Raspberry Mini- Cheesecakes
Wanting to come up with a Valentine dessert that wouldn't be too many calories, I found this recipe on the Internet.
I used Valentine paper cupcake liners. Silver cupcake liners would work well too.
3 T. raspberry syrup(used for coffee drinks)
2-8oz. blocks of cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Makes 12 mini cheesecakes.
Beat cream cheese, sugar and syrup until blended. Add eggs, one at a time.
Place one Oreo on the bottom of a foil muffin cup. Cover with batter. Bake for 20 minutes or until center is set. Cool, and refrigerate.
To plate your dessert first, drizzle chocolate syrup in squiggly lines all over plate. Place a mini-cheesecake in the center of the cake. Add a dollop of whipping cream on top of the middle of the cheesecake. Place one raspberry on top.
*These cheesecakes can be made one day ahead.
Note: Thanks to my sister Merri for giving me the Valentine plates.
