Crock-pot/Slow Cooker December

unnamed

Howdy followers and readers. Or should I say Merry Christmas. It’s that time of year again! Lights, music, Mall Santa‘s, of course awesome recipes. I decided this month, since I have a lot on my plate to preview some of my favorite crock-pot/slow cooker recipes. If you are like me, you have relatives arriving in a week, with several other Christmas events in the community you must also be prepared for. So let’s commence Operation Crock-pot/Slow Cooker December. With some other recipes thrown in there for kicks.

 

A lot can be had with that pot you plug into the wall. And with little to zero prep. If you don’t have a crock-pot, these recipes can be adapted to be slow cooked on the stove or in the oven. Don’t you worry your pretty little head. You will truly love these recipes. You will believe the kitchen Elves came in while you weren’t looking and made a gourmet meal.

Just a hint: but that bag is the best thing ever. Requires little to no cleanup for you. Hence why Crock-Pot/Slow Cooker Recipes are so awesome.

 

Prepared to be awed. Check out my next post: Crock-pot Pot Roast!

I will be making a category solely for Crock-pot/Slow Cooker Recipes just for your ease and comfort.

Pumpkin Cheesecake Minis

Yup Pumpkin, again!

Are you sick of it yet?

Well, I have never added pumpkin to cheesecake before. I have made different variation of the cheesecake bite, with chocolate, mint chocolate etc. However, not a puree..

Well it really was too easy.

Recipe Card

 

First of all with cheesecake anything, your ingredients should be at room temperature so they come together like they should. If one item is too cold you may have liquid chasing the cheese around the bowl. Not Kidding. Had it happen. Cream you cream cheese alone before adding anything else, just as you would butter, add each item one by one. After all ingredients are adding, Whip well.

Make sure you use liners in the your cupcake tins.

Bake for 15 minutes, allow to cool. Refrigerate for best eating results.

I didn’t add any spices, but I plan to top it with Whip cream and a dash of pumpkin spice.

I will be placing this in ziplock bags and freeze until Thanksgiving. Allow to thaw and top with whip cream and cinnamon or cocoa powder.

My first batch I left in just a few minutes over, so they browned a bit.

Let me know how yours turns out!
