Who doesn't like a healthy dose of sprinkles? I especially love them when they are in cake or cookies. In this case, I put sprinkles inside and atop these Mini Funfetti Cheesecakes for the ultimate bite-size sprinkle experience!
First a Few Thoughts
Amidst the chaos outside our doors, we can find solace in good food. In this case, that means bite-sized funfetti cheesecakes. Quite frankly, one of my favorite pastimes is eating. However, with gyms closed, I am still watching what I eat (most of the time, wink wink.) I am taking this new abundance of time to create, cook, and bake. I am striving to expel my energy into positive construction, in this case, this blog. It is with high hope, that these recipes and posts may help distract you, even if just for a moment.
My usually tired brain lacks the creative energy needed to create multiple recipes a week. With all this time, however, I have been on a recipe creation rampage. These recipes are solely based upon what I have in my kitchen pantry. Thankfully, I have a good supply of flour and sugar on hand. We all need to do our part and expel selfish tendencies; make small batch recipes and utilize what you have on hand first. We are all in this together, and we all need groceries in our pantries and fridges. This is a simple concept and one that will aid in our survival through this public health emergency.
Now for these Mini Funfetti Cheesecakes!
These little cheesecakes are equipped with plenty of colorful sprinkles, sweet cream cheese filling, and a sugar cookie base. For the cookie base, I used this sugar cookie recipe. And I scooped the mini cookies at approximately a ½ tsp of dough. I baked the cookies for roughly 5 minutes. Once completely cooled, you will have to trim the cookies slightly to fit into the mini muffin tins.
