I am sitting here trying to figure out what to tell you today. I am struggling. I could talk about the weather. It was in the 60’s here today. Kind of windy and overcast. I could tell you about my day. I went running today. Ran for 5 miles, it was a tough 5 miles too. Not sure why though? I went at a different time than normal, but not that far off. I usually go at 8:30 after I get my son on the bus. Well on Tuesdays I volunteer in his classroom at 9:00, so I go after I am done with that. I got hungry during my run, even though I ate breakfast. I NEVER get hungry during a run. Even when I ran my 1/2 marathon, I didn’t get hungry. I do the Gu and Power Blocks for the energy, not because I am actually hungry. I also ran kind of fast today. I kept trying to make myself slow down, but it just wasn’t working. Or maybe it was because I was by myself. I usually do my “longer” runs with a friend. Our schedules aren’t working this week so I was on my own today. I baked this afternoon too. Not these little treats but something cinnamon! It is my husbands last week of work. Our wonderful friends had a going away party for us on Saturday. While at the party one of my husbands coworkers suggested that I should send it one last batch of treats. How could I not oblige!
Ok, so that is enough of nothing. Why don’t I just get to the treats. I made these for a party we went to a couple weeks ago. I am not a big fan of cheesecake (stems from my hatred for cream cheese), but when it is flavored I like it. I figured my love of Oreo’s would work for flavoring. These were creamy and delicious! My first ever attempt at cheesecake!
1 package Oreo’s
Beat cream cheese and sugar with mixer until blended. Add sour cream and vanilla; mix well. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating after each just until blended. Gently stir in chopped cookies. Scoop into baking cups.
Bake for 18 to 20 min. or until centers are set. Cool completely. Refrigerate 3 hours or until chilled. Topped with Whipped Cream, and 1/2 an Oreo to serve.
