Christmas Cooking! 20 December

On Wednesday we made delicious edible mini Santas!


We started by using a mini Oreo for the biscuit base then followed the below recipe to make mini cheesecakes:

  1. Use an electric beater to beat the cream cheese (250g), caster sugar (1/2 cup), vanilla  essence (1 teaspoon) and lemon juice (1 tablespoon) until smooth and creamy. Add the eggs, one at a time.
  2. Divide the cream cheese mixture amongst the muffin cups, pouring it or spooning it over each mini Oreo.
  3. Bake in the oven for 20 minutes or until slightly risen and just beginning to crack on the surface.
  4. Cool completely on a wire rack and refrigerate while you make the toppings.

We then put a generous amount of whipped cream on each one, followed by a strawberry (with the top cut off) and another small blob of cream on the top; which became the fur trim, hat and bobble!

They tasted even more delicious then they looked!! Oreos, Cheesecake, Strawberries and Cream – what’s not to love?! Plus they looked super cute 🙂
