We had you in mind this fall when we developed our new, easy mini cheesecake recipes and know they will make their way to your holiday party or table very soon. How did we begin this project? Cheesecake Cookie Cups has always been a very popular recipe with our bakers using our NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Chocolate Chip Cookie Bar Dough. Starting with the same base cheesecake filling of cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, eggs and vanilla extract, we switched things up a bit by changing the cookie base to use our indulgent NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE ULTIMATES™ Cookie Dough flavors, such as Pecan Turtle Delight and Dark Chocolate Delight and then added simple toppings that matched the cookie used. NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE ULTIMATES™ Cookie Dough delivers an indulgent treat with 100% real chocolate flavor and other add-ins such as pecans and caramel.
Here is the recipe featured above and some more tempting images. The hardest decision will be which deciding which one to invite!
Ingredients for 24 mini cheesecakes
- 1 package (16 ounces) NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Ultimates™ Refrigerated Pecan Turtle Delight Cookie Dough
- 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, at room temperature
- 1 can (14 ounces) NESTLÉ® CARNATION® Sweetened Condensed Milk
- 2 large eggs
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup caramel ice cream topping
- 1/2 cup chopped pecans
- 2 tablespoons NESTLÉ® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Mini Morsels
PREHEAT oven to 325° F. Paper-line 24 muffin cups. Cut each square of dough in half. Place one piece of dough in each muffin cup.
BAKE for 10 to 12 minutes or until cookie has spread to edge of cup.
BEAT cream cheese, sweetened condensed milk, eggs and vanilla extract in medium bowl until smooth. Spoon about 3 tablespoons cream cheese mixture over each cookie in cup.
BAKE for additional 15 to 18 minutes or until set. Cool completely in pan on wire rack. Refrigerate for 1 hour. Top each with caramel topping, pecans and morsels.
The cookie base used for the Dark Chocolate Peppermint Cheesecake Cookie Cups (pictured above) is our new ULTIMATES™ Dark Chocolate Delight Cookie Dough. For extra pepperminty flavor, peppermint dust is added to the batter.
These Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cheescake Cookie Cups have a double dose of peanut butter and milk chocolate in both the cookie base (ULTIMATES™ Chocolate Peanut Butter Deluxe) and topping (Peanut Butter & Milk Morsels).
Let the party begin!
