Chocolate Chip Cookie Mini Cheesecakes

When I think about cheesecake I think about the crust and topping too. For this recipe I wanted to incorporate an ingredient that everyone in my home loves. What about chocolate chip cookies? Chocolate chip cookies make a great crust. I had already tried it on a regular size cheesecake, but this time I wanted to try them on a individual version. It just happens that today is National Cheesecake Day. Lets celebrate together with this chocolate chip cookie mini cheesecakes.

Blog Crush with Simply Southern Baking

Blog-Crush-mysweetzepol-with-simply-southern-bakingWelcome back to the Blog Crush Series. Today I want you to meet Robin from Simply Southern Baking. When I first met Robin, about four years ago, she was pondering about the idea of starting a food blog. She was attending Food Blog Forum to learn more about the food blog community and if blogging was something she really wanted to do. We hit it off right away and have been great friends ever since. If you haven’t been to her blog I suggest you do so, she’s a real sweet heart and is very talented around the kitchen.

Blog Crush with Katie’s Cucina

Blog-Crush-with-katie's-cucina-and-mysweetzepolFor years I have been reading a handful of blogs and I’m constantly inspired by them. This new series will make appearance on Mondays and will showcase some of the bloggers that I follow on a regular basis. The beauty is that most of them are personal friends in real life and all thanks to the strong community that has been built throughout the years.

My first blog crush is Katie from Katie’s Cucina. I met Katie, during the first Food Blog Forum and then came across her while working on some events like food bloggers bake sales, other conferences, cookie swaps and meet-ups. Along the years a beautiful friendship was born and now she is one the food bloggers that inspires me the most and I am so thrilled and honor to have her be my first guest during the blog crush series.
