A few nights ago I tweeted a picture of one of my favorite treats! I first made these in my 3rd grade classroom & they quickly became a go-t0 snack for me. What I most love about them (aside from the fact that they are delicious), is that they take literally 5 minutes to make and I usually always have the ingredients on hand. Who doesn’t love a recipe like that?!
What you’ll need:
And that is it!
It seems like an unusual combo, and obviously not the healthiest of foods… but hey, there is an apple in there, and I promise these are absolutely delicious!
If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen me tweet that my office building had a pot luck lunch this afternoon. We love doing this once a month or so. This time around, we tried to all bring something healthy. Unfortunately, the office downstairs didn’t get the memo, and one of the women made the most incredibly, sinful desserts I have ever tasted.
She brought these amazing home made oatmeal/apple cheesecake bites; I asked her for the recipe and she gave me a quick step by step of how she created this masterpiece….
Mix a batch of oatmeal cookie batter
Lay it in the bottom of a baking tray
Mix together 2 packages of Philadelphia Cream Cheese, some cinnamon, and powdered sugar
Lay mixture over oatmeal cookie batter
Thinly slice apples (or pears, peaches…any fruit) and sautee in butter/cinnamon for a few minutes until soft
Lay apple sizes on top of cream cheese
Refrigerate & slice
I totally ignored my effort to eat healthy during the week by having one of these this afternoon, but it was so worth it; and I learned a great new recipe!
