Dear Nice Readers,
I lie sometimes here on this blog. It's a disease I can't control.
I'm not lying about how scrumptious and fluffy this Pumpkin Cheesecake Bite recipe is though!
Or that I will make you smile with the following pictures.
Or at least get a slight upturn of the mouth.
Or a minor crinkle of the eyes.
This picture is the startins' of a big pumpkiny smile.
Startins' is a word.
Look it up.
See, a horsey was carved by my niece.
Doesn't that make you smile?
And here's the horsey pumpkin all
lit up at night.
Now, I bet THAT made ya smile!
And now let's move onto this
Cheesecake Bite Recipe.
I came across this recipe on the website www.picky-palate.com. The website has many other cool recipes with beautiful food pictures. Way cooler than my blurry, tacky pictures :)

And this is the lineup...Not too many ingredients here! Rather affordable really.
We start by mixing the finely ground oreos (I used my food processor, thanks Aunt Stephanie :) with the melted butter and pat evenly in the bottom of each sprayed muffin tin.
By the way, this recipe calls for a cheesecake tin. I went EVERYWHERE looking for a cheesecake tin in town, and could not locate one so I did what other readers have done and just used a muffin tin. The only downside to that is the little cheesecakes concave a little in the middle after baking. No worries though.
Partially bake the oreos in the tin for 10 minutes...Angie's note: 10 minutes is too long, watch the bottoms carefully so they don't burn, try 5-6 minutes.
Well gosh, if you insist!!!
Beat in egg, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg until combined.
Pour evenly into
the twelve cups,
filling about 3/4
Spoon about a teaspoon of caramel
into the tops of each filled cup and
swirl with a toothpick gently.
Bake for 25-28 minutes or until cheesecake is cooked through. Let cool completely.
Have you tasted the Pumpkin spice Hershey's kisses?
Yuk. Bad aftertaste.
So I just used the Hershey's Dark Chocolate kisses.
Remove cheesecakes from pan and top each with a spoonful of caramel and a Hershey Kiss.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.
SERIOUSLY, LOOK AT THESE!
AND THEY TASTE AS DELICIOUS AS THEY LOOK!
Uh, of course I scarfed two just to make sure they were edible :)
These Black Bottomed Mini Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake Bites look so pretty grouped on a plate; they would make a fabulous gift or just a special desert for the family. And the pumpkin taste is not overpowering one bit, just the right amount of pumpkin creaminess.
Do I have you hooked yet?
If anyone makes these, please let me know how they turn out!
Have a great Wednesday!!!!
