Mini Oreo Cheesecakes 

For the crust:
  • 12 Oreos
  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
For the cheesecake filling:
  • 12 ounces cream cheese, softened to room temperature
  • ¼ cup sour cream
  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 6 Oreos, crushed

To make the crust:
  1. Preheat oven to 325°F. Spray each cavity of a 12-count mini cheesecake pan well with nonstick cooking spray and set aside. You may also use a regular 12-count muffin pan, I suggest lining each cavity with cupcake liners for easier removal.
  2. Add the Oreos to a blender or food processor and process until you have fine crumbs. Scoop the crumbs into a mixing bowl and add the melted butter. Mix together until all of the crumbs are moistened. Evenly distribute the filling between all 12 cavities in the mini cheesecake pan, making sure to press each one down firmly into one even layer. Bake at 325°F for 5 minutes, remove from the oven, and set aside to cool. Keep oven temperature at 325°F while you make the filling.
To make the cheesecake filling:
  1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, or in a large mixing bowl using an electric mixer, add the cream cheese and mix until smooth. Add in the sour cream, granulated sugar, and vanilla extract and continue mixing until well combined, scraping down the sides of the bowl as needed. Add in the egg and mix on low speed until just combined, then gently fold in the crushed Oreos.
  2. Evenly distribute the cheesecake filling between all 12 cavities of the pan and return to the oven. Bake at 325°F for 15-17 minutes or until the tops of the cheesecakes are set.
  3. Remove from the oven and allow to cool at room temperature for at least 1 hour. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and transfer to the refrigerator to chill for at least 2-3 hours or overnight. Once the cheesecakes are chilled remove them from the pan, serve, and enjoy!

quilt monday

One of hubby's co-workers had a baby and I knew exactly the kind of quilt I wanted to make for them.

I had the quilt all finished up except for the binding and once we learned that they had a little boy I went with a dark grey binding. For a girl it would have been pink.

I had just enough of my favourite chevron flannel for the backing.

I will admit, I'm not thrilled with the quilting. I wish I had gone with a different panto on it.

quilted with Spilled Ink

It didn't look terrible, just not exactly the look I was going for lol.
But they loved it and I love how it turned out; such a great quick and easy quilt.

This fabric line was(is) perfection. Absolutely perfect for a male quilt. I just wish it had been easier to find; it sold out locally here so quickly. But seriously, I can not blame quilters for scooping these lovelies up; I regret not doing so myself.


quilted with Bright and Breezy

This is the second of three grad quilts I made this year. I thought I had bought enough fabric but not surprising, I hadn't. Lucky for me, some Grunge fabric went perfectly for a border.

I love how these matching blocks ended up dead center in the quilt.

This pattern went together very quickly which is always a bonus.

I backed it in a brushed cotton.

Love how the pattern shows on the backing.

And I love the look on grads' faces when they open these up.

odds and ends

Hard to believe that summer 2017 has come and gone. We had a great summer, camping, beach days, amusement parks and a roadtrip to Yellowstone. On the other hand, not a lot of sewing happened but I did get a few things finished.

I made a some baby quilts.

And have another one to get too.

Worked on another secret project ;)

I was 'queen bee' for the TrueNorth bee blocks.

I love happy mail.

And I started a little something for me,
