Gingerbread Amaretto Mini Cheesecakes
Rose Mary Mogan
Because I had bought these Nabisco Gingerbread sandwich cookies, I wanted to incorporate them into the dessert. So I crushed them & used them as the crust. I love desserts with Amaretto & used that as a flavor enhancer.
I topped them with cherry pie filling, you can use other flavors as well.
This was a perfect ending dessert to COMPLETE my Valentines Dinner, since I had also made a CRAN-BLUEBERRY PIE.
My husband loved the perfectly set table & SPECIAL VALENTINES DINNER MENU.
