Pop them in the oven to bake, and in about thirty minutes, you’ve got a pan full of deliciousness! It’s important to let them cool down so the cheesecake layer can set up, even though it’s definitely a challenge to wait. 🙂 Once they’ve cooled, it’s time to dig in! I’m warning you, though, make sure you have people to share them with, because you’ll want to eat the whole pan. They’re so addicting and delicious, and sure to be your new favorite dessert!

Cheesecake Filling

  • 8 oz cream cheese softened
  • 1/4 cup sugar
