This all started last year when Camilla rallied some blogging friends to help her celebrate her 15th wedding anniversary. She was only looking for fifteen cheesecake recipes. But we posted waaaaaay more than #FifteenCheesecakes.
It was such a hit and we all had so much fun that she decided to see if she could get enthusiasm for another round of cheesecakes. Yep. This is an encore performance by some of her favorite foodie bloggers.
Today is also Mom Klik's birthday. She will be celebrating up in heaven this year but since we were sharing these recipes today, I decided to make individual cheesecakes that I served in the refreshment room during Mom's funeral visitations.
I'm afraid I didn't get any good shots of the cheesecakes but they were delicious, none the less. They are easy to make and would be great for a St. Pat's party too with their lovely green color. I adapted my recipe from one by Pillsbury.
Make sure you scroll down past the recipe to all the other great cheesecake offerings. You will be so happy that you did.
