Some food Fun for the 4th of July #foodie #foodporn

~~REPOST  from 2 years ago, but worth sharing again.

What's a 4th of July BBQ with  out some great side dishes---There are TONS of recipes all over the web weeks before and they all look so good. I could be cooking for the whole week but I've decided on a few I know our family will really enjoy! Being the gal who has to put her own spin on almost everything each recipe has a Pam twist =^D

Easy Recipe-- Mini Cheesecakes

Easy Recipe-- Mini Cheesecakes
If you love cheesecake, are pressed for time or feel like you are a baking-dummy, this recipe is for you. It requires so few ingredients and bakes up in just 20 minutes.

2 8-ounce packs of cream cheese, softened
2 large eggs
1 cup of sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla or almond extract
12 vanilla wafers
Fresh fruit or topping of your choice

To make:
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line muffin tins with 12 paper cups and place one vanilla wafer in the bottom of each cup. Blend cream cheese with a hand mixer until fluffy. Add sugar and beat until mixed. Add eggs, one at a time until well incorporated and then vanilla extract. Fill each cup with cheesecake mixture. Bake for 20 minutes and let sit out on a cooling rack in the muffin pan for about 20-30 minutes. Transfer pans in to refrigerator and chill for a minimum of 2 hours. Overnight is best.

 My first though was to replace the paper liners with graham cracker crumb crust and top with  Blueberries & Strawberry's  but my daughter's not the biggest fan of  Blueberries, suggested blue mini M's---well WHO doesn't love Strawberries and CHOCOLATE!!!

As a treat while watching fireworks we'll be munching on marshmallows and gummies along with  my inspirational twist on this treat I found on pinterest.
