Reesecup Cheesecake

Since Saturday is Valentines Day, I thought I would post of my favorite Valentine treats I do for Hubby. It's so simple, and easy!!! I got it from Paula Deen, so you know it has to be good. So today I am sharing the love. Maybe I should make this "Dessert Tuesday" instead of "Recipe Tuesday" Tell me what ya think. Have a great day!!

Reesecup Cheesecake Minis

Ingredients
Crust:
1 1/2 cups graham cracker crumbs
4 tablespoons sugar
1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, melted
12 bite-size peanut butter cups
Filling:
2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, at room temperature
1 cup sugar
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract or almond extract
2 eggs
Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place a paper cupcake liner in each cup of a standard muffin pan. I personally like to do the mini cupcake cups, you get more chocolate!! If using that, bake at 350 for 12 minutes or until it settles.

To make crust, in a bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs, sugar and melted butter until crumbs are moistened. Press crust into bottom of each muffin cup. NOTE: I like to put them in decorative valentine cupcake cups because it makes them so pretty! Put 1 peanut butter cup into the center of each crust.

Beat cream cheese with a handheld electric mixer until fluffy. Add sugar, flour, and vanilla, beating well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Spoon cream cheese mixture over peanut butter cups and graham cracker crusts. Bake until just set, about 20 minutes. Allow to cool completely before serving.

ENJOY!!!

I love peanut butter cups but I know people who are afraid to eat peanut butter at all.
