One of my weekly follows is Bake at 350’s Sweet on Trader Joe’s posts. She and her son pick out a new treat each week and review them. In general, I have agreed wholeheartedly with their favorites, so I look forward to what goodies I should pick up from there! Well, I was catching up on all of the older posts in the series and came across the cookie butter cheesecake. That sounded delicious. I rushed to Trader Joe’s and searched frantically, but to no avail. Where was it?? I ended up asking the cashier who said it was a seasonal item. As in, only around Christmas time. What? Boo! So, I decided to make my own version.
Since then, I notice they have cookie butter cheesecake bites in their frozen aisle, but that’s not as impressive as pulling out a whole big cheesecake. So, I made a whole big cheesecake.
