What You'll Need:

The Preparation:

In the original recipe, it says to place in the freezer for a few hours after baking and cooling. I went ahead and just put mine in the fridge overnight and it set perfectly fine, so if you don't need this to be done quickly then I recommend using that method if need be. I also cut mine into a little larger than bite size pieces and managed to get about 20 total pieces.

Overall, this is a great simple cheesecake recipe that definitely took a twist with adding in the melted white chocolate chips. I am not a fan of white chocolate so I was hesitant to how this would impact the flavor, but I honestly did not notice any white chocolate flavoring in the bites. I enjoyed the fact there is not a ton of sugar in these so it keeps a very New York style flavor to the cheesecake. My crust was much thicker than I had expected it to be so it made for some of the bites to be quite uneven. I would likely make less crust or use a bigger pan next time.

The cooking time was perfect and the overall texture and flavor of the cheesecake was light and delicious. I really enjoyed the crust as well and found it to be a simple recipe that can easily be turned into many other options. I am not a baker by any means so my decorating skills are sub-par but I think this design still turned out fairly cute. I highly recommend giving these a try as they do not take long to come together and will be a perfect addition to any holiday celebration. I am delighted to make more of these come Christmas time and experiment with more flavors in the cheesecake batter.

Keep in mind, every month all of you get to decide which recipe goes into the next Pinterest Test Kitchen, so keep an eye out for next month's poll! If you are new to this series, every month I post a poll with four recipe options from my many Pinterest recipe boards. After one week of voting, the recipe with the most votes becomes the one I test out by the end of the month. This helps me try something new and also put my Pinterest recipes to good use.
