I have done a lot of charity work and they always came running to me when it came to bake sales. So one year when the American Legion Auxiliary Juniors were doing there annual fundraiser the girls wanted to make a cheesecake. Due to them being young and me knowing the difficulty of making a scrumptious cheesecake, i opted to try this cute lil recipe.

We couldn't keep them on the table, even at $3.00 a piece. So if you like cheesecake, don't want the hassle of making a large one and don't want the cost - i recommend this for your cheesecake cravings and feening.
