Tempted by Cheesecake…..Sure why not? With Halloween and Thanksgivin coming up in a few weeks I figured I would tempt you with some Oreo mini Cheesecake.
Since It’s practically a tradition that this time of year, anything that can possibly be flavored with pumpkin and/or pumpkin pie spice will be flavored with them. The list gets longer with every passing autumn.
Did you hear? … The pumpkin flavor craze has infiltrated our favorite cookie, and while they aren’t available in stores yet, according to a few lucky people who have gotten their hands on the them - new flavor combination will be a huge hit ! So I decide to jump into that train and add some pumpkin flavor to classic Oreo mini Cheesecake.
Still Here ?
