Hello everyone! I'm delighted that Dawn invited me to share a recipe today. I'm Dawn and normally you can find me sharing my adventures in baking at DJ's Sugar Shack. I started blogging in December to catalog the recipes I'd tried and to spare my friends from my endless baking stories. I love sharing my work with people that are a passionate about food and baking. Being from New Orleans, food has always been a big part of my life, but I didn't really start cooking & baking until I moved to Alaska after college. The first thing I remember baking from scratch was Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake that I found on a Philadelphia Cream Cheese package. It was pretty good but it started me on my mission to bake the perfect cheesecake. Ten years later, I finally got it right! Sorry I'm not sharing my cheese cake recipe today. That's top secret. All of you have at least one recipe that you don't share, Right? I am going to be sharing a recipe for Sopapilla Cheesecake Bites. I printed this recipe from Cookies & Cups a while back and I sure wish I had tried it earlier. I tweaked it just a little bit. These little bites full of cinnamony, cream cheesy goodness are easy as pie to make. The hardest part will waiting for the cream cheese layer to set before digging in. I may or may not have had one for breakfast this morning.
