Happy Valentine’s day! But just remember everyday should be love day.  If you are single, love yourself like no other.  I wanted to make something special for all of you.  I made little mini cheesecakes. I made them pink with a couple drops of organic red food coloring (there is no flavor in food dye).  These little minis are super easy to make.  They are the perfect little dessert after a nice Valentine’s dinner.  Enjoy ❤

ingredients:

1 1/2 cups of crushed graham crackers (should probably be 8 to 10 pieces)

4 Tablespoons of melted unsalted butter

pinch of cinnamon

1 (8 oz) package of low-fat cream cheese at room temperature

1 egg

1/4 cup of sugar

1/2 teaspoon of vanilla

2 to 3 drops of red food coloring

Preparation:

Preheat oven on 325 degrees. In  a food processor or blender crush some graham crackers until you have 1 1/2 cups. Mix graham crackers with melted butter and cinnamon with a fork.  Take mini muffin tins and place about 1 tablespoon of the crackers in them, press down and place in the refrigerator for about 5 minutes so the crust gets firm.  In a medium size bowl using an electric mixer beat cream cheese and sugar for about a minute.  Then add egg and vanilla beat for another minute or so until nice and smooth. Afterwards add food coloring. Take an ice cream scooper or tablespoon to fill the tins with filling, you want to fill about halfway.  Bake for 15 minutes.  Take out and let sit for another 10 to 15 minutes then place in refrigerator for about 1 hour. The longer they stay in the frig the better.  Enjoy with some fruit and nice glass of wine or coffee.
